Liverpool are 1/3 favourites to sign the Scottish midfielder in the January transfer window while Aston Villa are 2/1. Bet now.

Adam made the request earlier on Monday, but the club have wasted little time in turning it down.

The Scottish international is keen to secure a move away from Bloomfield Road with Liverpool leading the chase for him.

However, so far all bids have been rejected with manager Ian Holloway insisting he will not move unless their valuation is met.

Alonso replacement

"If I was the Liverpool manager I would want to buy him because they have

never replaced Xabi Alonso," said Holloway.

"But you have to come up with the right amount of money. I don't want to stand

in his way, but they have to put up or shut up."

Holloway revealed chairman Karl Oyston had taken a call from the Reds' director of football strategy Damian Comolli on Sunday night which merely left the picture even more confused.

"He ummed and aahed and apparently did not make much sense," said Holloway, who confirmed Adam would be playing against Manchester United on Tuesday.

"If I tried to stop that boy playing against Manchester United he would probably kill me," he said.

"Charlie loves this club and just because he puts a transfer request in doesn't change that."
