Charlie Adam: Close to sealing a move to Stoke City from Liverpool
Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam has arrived at Stoke City for a medical as they look to tie up a deal before the close of the transfer window.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is willing to let Adam move on having brought in Joe Allen and Nuri Sahin this summer to bolster his midfield options.
The 26-year-old only joined Liverpool last summer from Blackpool, but it is clear he does not figure in Rodgers' long-term plans at Anfield.
The likes of Everton and Fulham have been linked with Adam, but it appears Stoke are in pole position to land the former Rangers man.
Stoke are keen to add to their squad before Friday's deadline and they made a £4million bid for the Scotland international earlier this week.
Adam has now arrived at Stoke's training ground to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms ahead of his switch to the Britannia Stadium.
The Potters later issued a statement on their club website confirming the fee had been agreed.
"Stoke City have confirmed that they have agreed a fee with Liverpool over the signing of Scottish international Charlie Adam," it read.
"The 26-year-old midfielder is currently at the club's Clayton Wood Training Ground for discussions over personal terms and to undergo a medical."
