Blackpool captain Charlie Adam insists he will not dwell on the disappointment of missing out on a January transfer.
Adam has been one of the Seasiders’ stand-out performers so far this season and has attracted the interest of both Liverpool and Tottenham, but neither side were able to wrap up a deal before the transfer window slammed shut.
However, the Scotland international, 25, is refusing to sulk about what unfolded and maintains he is determined to help Blackpool maintain their Premier League status.
He told the Daily Record: “The transfer thing has been easy for me to deal with.
“I've played against West Ham and Everton since then, played well in the games, and that's how we get on with it.
“It's done, the window is closed. The aim now is to keep Blackpool in the league. It's going to be difficult after losing a couple but it's a wonderful league to be playing in.
“The last day of the transfer window was all a bit mad. It's like every transfer window, isn't it? Everybody goes mental - Sky Sports especially, with the clock ticking down on one side of the telly.
“But it's just like any other day in a footballer's life - if there's speculation, that's what happens.
“It was crazy but it's gone. The focus now is Blackpool.”
