Aston Villa move to wreck Liverpool plans for Adam signing

Aston Villa are moving to wreck Liverpool plans for Blackpool midfielder Charlie Adam.

Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston confirmed talks with Liverpool last week.

But the Express & Star says new Villa boss Alex McLeish is keen on his fellow Scot.

Villa will have cash to spend when Ashley Young completes his £16m move to Manchester United and need to beef up their midfield after the exit of Nigel Reo-Coker.

McLeish, controversially appointed as Villa boss after quitting Blues on Sunday, spoke to owner Randy Lerner about transfer targets during his interview and has been linked with a swoop for former charge Scott Dann.
