Charlie Adam leaves Liverpool for Stoke


STOKE, England (AP) -Liverpool has sold Charlie Adam to Stoke after the Scotland midfielder fell out of favor at Anfield.

A day after sending striker Andy Carroll on loan to West Ham, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers let Adam join Stoke on a four-year deal as he continues his reshaping of the squad. The transfer fee wasn't disclosed but British media say it is in the region of 4 million pounds ($6.35 million).

Adam says "this club's on the up and it's great to be a part of it. I hope I can help them to improve upon the success which has been achieved over the past few years."

The 26-year-old Adam struggled for game time at Liverpool toward the end of last season and wasn't part of Rodgers' plans for the new campaign.
