Blackpool “mucked about” Charlie Adam during the January transfer window, according to his agent Kenny Moyes.
Adam was targeted by Liverpool throughout last month but the Reds were never able to agree a fee with the Seasiders, and time then ran out on Tottenham’s last-gasp bid to land the Scotland international.
The 25-year-old will now remain at Bloomfield Road for the rest of the season at least and has insisted he will give his all for the club, but representative Moyes is unhappy with how his client has been treated.
Moyes told The Sun: “Charlie loves Blackpool and the Blackpool fans, but he was desperate to move to Liverpool - who wouldn't feel that way when a club like that comes calling?
“But he was seriously mucked about. Blackpool refused to put a figure on how much they wanted for him and would not enter any meaningful negotiations.
“It has been a major stress for Charlie, a real emotional roller-coaster. As well as being angry he feels gutted and badly let down as the only player to put in a transfer request and have it ignored.
“Luckily, coming from Rangers, he is bullet-proof, and I can promise you that you won't see any difference in his level of performance.
“He will be as committed and passionate as ever. That's just the way Charlie is - he's the sort of guy you would always want in the trenches alongside you.
“But he has personal ambitions he wants to fulfil, and I just hope the club play fair with him in the summer.”
