Despite reports that Charlie Adam has been made available to any side willing to pay £5M for his services and that he has moreover been informed playing time will hover somewhere between sparse and non-existent for him should he remain at Liverpool, the out of favour midfielder insists he's happy where he is and has no intention of seeking a move.
"I have never heard anything about Fulham, nobody has spoken to me about it, so for the moment it is paper talk and at the moment I am not going anywhere," was Adam's take on matters when asked about the rumours linking him away from Anfield by the Liverpool Echo. "I am happy at Liverpool and why would I leave after a year? There is no point."
Playing time and the chance to make a difference for a side that desires his presence might seem the obvious points, but with Liverpool involved in four competitions this season the player obviously believes his chance will come and that when it does he will be able to take it. Manager Brendan Rodgers, however, appears to disagree—something Adam has himself all but confirmed.
"I am open enough to say I have had a conversation with the manager," he admitted, "but for me I’m not going anywhere. I want to play this year and hopefully I [will] get the opportunity to do that. For us at Liverpool it is a big season, we have got Europa League and we want to improve on what we did last year in the league."
With Liverpool having reached a stage in the transfer window where it is believed they must sell to finance any further spending, Charlie Adam digging in his heels over any potential transfer could be bad news for Brendan Rodgers and the club's hopes for a successful 2012-13 campaign.
