Adam, 30, joined Stoke from Liverpool back in 2012, having struggled to really make an impact at Anfield following a move from Blackpool a year earlier.
Since that move, Adam has not only racked up over 100 appearances for the Potters, but also gave Stoke fans a memorable moment by scoring 65 yards against Chelsea last season.
Now though, Adam has fallen down the pecking order this term, and whilst he has made ten Premier League starts, it's clear that his role has been diminishing of late.
With that in mind, the Daily Star report that the former Rangers man is keen to move away from the Britannia Stadium in search of first-team football elsewhere.
It's also stated that two Championship clubs are interested in making ambitious moves for the Scottish international, with Brighton and Hove Albion and Wolverhampton Wanderers believed to be chasing Adam, who can certainly still do a job in the top flight.
Brighton have won just once in the last eight games as their Championship title pursuit has faded, but Chris Hughton's men are still pushing for a play-off place - and he may well believe that the experience of Adam could get the Seagulls over the line and into the Premier League.
Meanwhile, Wolves sit eight points adrift of the play-offs, but having sold Benik Afobe to Bournemouth, Kenny Jackett may have some money to spend, with Adam an alleged target for Wolves this month.
Would Adam be a good signing for Brighton or Wolves?
