Adam trying to ignore interest

But the Scotland midfielder insists his sole focus is on helping

keep Blackpool in the Premier League. United are the latest club

reportedly interested in signing Tangerines playmaker Adam, who was

the subject of unsuccessful bids from Liverpool and Spurs during

the last transfer window. Adam said: “It’s a privilege to be linked

with these types of clubs but it’s not just about me, it’s about

this club and my team-mates as well. “My club-mates have helped me

and they’ve done well as well.” Former Rangers youngster Adam,

whose contract expires at the end of next season, insisted he knew

“nothing” about his future beyond May. “I’m not concentrating on my

future,” the 25-year-old added. “I’m just worrying about my next

eight games for my club and trying to keep Blackpool in the league

because that’s been the focus and that’s always been the focus.

“We’ll see what happens, that’s out of my hands, and I’ll look

forward to the next eight games and try to play as well as I can.”

After initially taking the Premier League by storm in their first

top-flight season since 1971, Blackpool have won only one of their

past 10 games to slip to a point above the relegation zone. Teams

that go into freefall are often those which ultimately get

relegated but Adam, who is also a Premier League rookie, said:

“We’re just focused on each game as it comes and playing the way we

know we can. “At the end of the day, if we’re good enough, we’ll

stay in the league. The table never lies.” Ian Holloway’s men could

find themselves in the bottom three when they next take to the

field at Fulham on Sunday, with all their relegation rivals playing

the day before. Adam said: “Every game’s huge for us. “From the

start of the season right to the end, it’s a big game. “So we’ll

look forward to it and try to get as many points as we can from now

until the end of the season and hopefully it’s good enough to stay

in the league.”
