Charlie Adam was put through the wringer this week as first Liverpool wanted him and then Spurs.
The sought-after Scottish midfielder thought all his dreams had came true when Liverpool first made their interest known, but this dream faded shortly after when Blackpool turned down the derisory offer that had been made to them for the player.
Charlie, in turn, handed in a transfer request to his employers but again this was turned down. All had gone quiet on this until the final day of the transfer window, when his on-off move was reignited when more talks with Liverpool took place but yet again, much to Adam's dismay, the Merseyside team walked away and he remained a Blackpool player.
However the saga of the day wasn't finished as it transpired that Spurs became interested in him with the minutes running out on the 11 pm deadline for transfers in England, but it was too little too late for Adam and now has to get back to playing for his current club and for the time being, forget about the interest laid on him.
He has pledged his full playing ability to Blackpool but there can be no doubt that he will probably be on the move in the next transfer window if he keeps up the good work he has already done with his current side.
For now, Charlie Adam remains a Blackpool player.
