Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam has admitted that he would be interested in playing abroad one day, but is in no rush to leave the Premier League side.
The 29-year-old has found opportunities at the Britannia limited of late due to the form of the likes of Bojan. The former Liverpool man has been on the bench for the last seven league and cup matches, prompting speculation that he could be set to leave the club in January, with moves to Spain and Turkey being mooted.
The Scotland international has been heavily linked with Real Sociedad since David Moyes took charge at the Basque club. The former Manchester United boss’ brother Kenny is Adam’s agent and it is believed the Txuriurdin’s assistant manager Billy McKinlay watched the former Rangers youngster play against Burnley last month.
The former Blackpool player has also attracted interest from Turkish giants Galatasaray and admits the opportunity to play abroad at some stage in his career appeals to him.
He said: “I would love the experience of playing abroad because it’s certainly something different. Hopefully, more British players will go and do it.”
Despite this the Dundee-born player is happy to fight for his place at the Potters and has no immediate plans to move anywhere.
He continued: “It’s going to happen when you have good players not playing and the opportunity for clubs to have a look at things (in the window). But there’s nothing happening at the moment and I am happy to be here at Stoke.”
The Scotland international will be hoping to return to the starting line-up for Saturday’s trip to Crystal Palace. Mark Hughes’ men are 2.81 to take all the points at Selhurst Park.
The hosts are 2.55 and the draw is 3.10 in what is anticipated to be a tight encounter between the two sides.
