Blackpool manager Ian Holloway has admitted that his side will find it hard to keep hold of star midfielder Charlie Adam amid increasing interest from Liverpool.
Adam was close to a move to Anfield in the January transfer window, and was also subject of a last minute bid from Tottenham. However, no deal was done at the time.
Holloway is not however too confident of his chances of keeping hold of the Scotland international. Talking to the Blackpool Gazette, he said: “The situation will be taken out of my hands because of how well he has played. Other people who have a lot more resources than I have will have seen what he can do, and it will be their choice and not mine.”
Holloway expects the club to hold out for the best possible offer for Blackpool: “Until his contract runs out (June 2012) surely we should hold out for what we think is right and not be bullied by some bigger, stronger and tougher clubs”.
Adam, who signed for around £5m from Rangers in 2009, has made 30 league appearances so far this season, scoring nine goals.
