With midfield reinforcements of greater quality and fit arriving this summer, an exit for Charlie Adam has seemingly been on the cards for a while. Most of the talk previously centered on a player swap deal with Fulham to bring Clint Dempsey to Anfield, but that proved to either be untrue or something that simply couldn't be worked out. So at risk of running something else that might not be true or can't be worked out, Ben Smith of the BBC is reporting that Tony Pulis and Stoke City have tabled an offer to bring the Scottish international aboard. Also included is talk of a loan deal for Jay Spearing and renewed interest in Clint Dempsey, which would be boosted by the money Adam's sale would raise. Basically Friday's going to be really boring.
