Everton boss Moyes frustrated losing Adam race to Liverpool
Moyes, whose brother Kenny is Adam's agent, revealed: "I was interested in him a while back but I couldn't afford him. I couldn't afford my brother's wages, either!
"I think Charlie has really come to the fore since he made the move to Blackpool, it was a great move for him.
"In a way it resurrected his career because he had bobbed around. But he played really well for Blackpool and deservedly got his move."
