With the transfer window now open, players in both England and Scotland will be expected to move team as they look for more minutes or a step up heading into the second half of the season.
And one name who could be in for a change of scenery is Stoke City’s Charlie Adam with the 33-year-old confirming a return to former club Rangers would interest him.
“At the moment I am still contracted to Stoke but I want to play and hopefully there are opportunities during the window to play somewhere,” Adam told Press Association Sport (via BT Sport) when speaking about his future.
“The Rangers thing is something that it would interest me. Absolutely. I have been back more times this season than in the last four or five years. I can see it is going in the right direction.”
At 33 and having played in the Premier League with Liverpool, Stoke and Blackpool, Adam is clearly an individual with a lot of experience.
On top of that, Adam is also someone who can bring a lot to the middle of the park with his passing and shooting ability, something he has often shown down the years.
But with Adam not getting any younger and Rangers already trying to bring in the 34-year-old Steven Davis from Southampton, Steven Gerrard should think twice before making any potential move for the Stoke midfielder.
Having too many ageing players could have ramifications for the Glasgow club in the long run, while Gerrard has already shown he is capable of working and getting the best out of much younger individuals who could have bright futures at Ibrox.
