Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam laughs off Real Sociedad talk

Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam has dismissed rumours linking the 29-year-old with a move to join David Moyes at Real Sociedad.

Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam has dismissed speculation that he could join David Moyes at Real Sociedad.

The 29-year-old, who is in the final year of his contract with Stoke City, has been linked with Real Sociedad due to his agent Kenny Moyes being the brother of former Manchester United and current Sociedad manager David Moyes.

However, in a recent interview with Alan Brazil's Sports Breakfast on talkSPORT, Adam dismissed the rumours and stressed that he has no intention of leaving the Britannia and hopes to work out a new deal within the coming weeks.

“You should not believe everything you read. I’m happy at Stoke and I’ve got another year on my contract," he said.

“There is always going to be links because my agent [Kenny] is David Moyes’ brother.

“Real Sociedad are a good side and he’s done a great job but at the moment I’m focusing on playing in the Premier League. It’s where I want to play.”

Since taking over la Real last November, Moyes has insisted that he needs more from his midfield, something that he feels has been a weak point in his squad and a hard-nosed Scottish midfielder like Adam would be the ideal fit for Moyes' British-Spanish style.

Burnley's Danny Ings has also been linked with a summer move to Anoeta by sources such as the Mirror, as Moyes continues trying to convince players to take a leap of faith and make the move abroad.
