Adam wants more game time at Stoke

Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam insists he wants to stay at the club, although he's grown frustrated at the lack of first-team opportunities this season.

The 31-year-old signed a contract extension at the start of the campaign tying him to the Bet365 Stadium until 2019, but has seen precious little game time in the opening three months.

Adam made his first appearance in the league on Saturday as Mark Hughes' side secured a 1-0 win over Watford at Vicarage Road, with his only other two outings coming in the EFL Cup.

The Scot is enjoying his time with the Potters, having joined them from Liverpool in 2012, but wants to be involved on a more regular basis.

"I love it here and I want to stay but I want to be playing as well so we will have to wait and see," Adam was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"It is frustrating but we will see what happens in the next couple of months and go from there.

"The manager has said that I would have to wait for an injury or a suspension before I get an opportunity.

"I try and work hard, I don't cause any problems, I enjoy it there and the manager knows that when called on he could rely on me.

"But it all comes down to the club and what they want to do. It's a great club to be part of and we will see what happens."
