BLACKPOOL are yet to receive an offer for Charlie Adam - although a number of clubs are lining up bids for the star.

The Gazette understands no offers have yet been tabled for the Seasiders skipper, though interest in the Seasiders skipper is hotting up.

Sources suggest that Everton could compete for Adam’s signature with their great rivals Liverpool, who are poised to renew their interest despite a £20m swoop for Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is a long-time admirer of Adam and is believed to be waiting on the results of other offers for players before deciding whether to make a move.

Adam has stated his desire to play in the Premier League next season.

Chairman Karl Oyston maintains the Adam situation is outside his control but insists that any transfer income from the Scot’s sale would be used wisely.

Oyston said: “It’s out of my hands and down to other clubs’ valuation and interest.

“Financially, the promotion last year has set us up for foreseeable future. Money is not the problem – it’s sticking hold of it and making sure we don’t ship it out to agents and players in disproportionate amounts, which is the problem in football.

“I didn’t want to be a club that spent one season in the Premier League and went back down financially weakened.

“We are a work in progress and have long-term plans to strengthen the business.”
