Stoke City's Charlie Adam shoots at goal
The summer arrival of Darren Fletcher from West Bromwich Albion has prompted questions about the future of Charlie Adam.
The 31-year-old midfielder joined Stoke City in 2012 from Liverpool. He has made over 130 Premier League appearances for the club, and has scored 19 goals.
Adam admits that while Fletcher is a good signing for the club, there is going to be competition for places.
In recent months, there has been speculations linking Adam with a move to the Scottish club Glasgow Rangers (Stoke Sentinel). However, it seems Adam, who has only a year left in his contract, is not looking to leave the club at the moment.
"I have a year left and we'll see what happens. I'm happy to stay there and play, although it'll be another challenge," said Adam, as quoted by Stoke Sentinel.
"It has never crossed my mind to move on, though. Why would I? The family's happy, the kids are settled."

Adam signed with Rangers from Dundee when he was 17, and went on to establish himself as a key player for the Gers.
He moved to Blackpool in 2009 and helped them win promotion to the Premier League. Adam said earlier in an interview that moving out of the Rangers was the right choice for him at that time.
In that same interview Adam said that he might return to Scotland in the future, but at this moment, it is hard to see him moving to Rangers anytime soon.
