Adam keen on Stoke stay but playing time is a priority
(Reuters) - Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam would be happy to extend his five-year stay at the Premier League club as long as he gets regular first-team playing time.
The 31-year-old was left on the bench for eight league games this season before making a two-minute cameo in last Saturday's 1-0 win at Watford. The Scot also played in the club's two League Cup games earlier this season.
"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 told Sky Sports.
"The manager (Mark Hughes) 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."
Currently 14th in the league, Stoke will try to climb up the table when they host 11th-placed Leicester City on Saturday.
