Loan Watch: Shelvey hat-trick for Blackpool

Jonjo Shelvey netted a hat-trick as Blackpool thrashed Leeds United 5-0 at Elland Road on Wednesday night.

The on-loan midfielder took his tally to five goals in six league games as Ian Holloway's side responded in fine style to Saturday's defeat to Burnley.

His first goal was a twice-taken penalty, he then rounded the goalkeeper for the second and sealed the treble with a nice finish.

Rumour Mill: Blackpool keen on Liverpool defender

Blackpool want to loan another Liverpool youngster in the form of Danny Wilson, according to The Daily Mail.

Manager Ian Holloway has already brought in midfielder Jonjo Shelvey from Anfield in a similar deal and signed Gerardo Bruna and Thomas Ince from Liverpool over the summer.

The former Rangers defender has barely figured for Liverpool since moving to Anfield in 2010 and only has one appearance to his name this campaign.

Lack of game time saw the youngster dropped from the senior Scotland squad for this month's crunch Euro 2012 qualifiers and he is determined to get things back on track.

Scotland international Wilson, 19, is also being chased by Leeds and Nottingham Forest.

Now, manager Ian Holloway is keen on defender Wilson and Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish will be more than happy to see his fellow Scot pick up some playing time at Bloomfield Road.

Blackpool wants Liverpool central defender in Adam deal

Having missed out on Connor Wickham to Sunderland and Gael Clichy to Manchester City. Liverpool has intensified its chase for more new recruits for the coming season. Charlie Adam has been the prime target since the January transfer window. Blackpool are trying to compensate the loss of Adam by signing more players on loan.

Blackpool captain Adam has told the Seasiders of his desire to leave for Anfield this summer but manager Ian Holloway is hoping to soften the blow by acquiring three players on loan.

Danny Wilson After Stephen Darby and Jonjo Shelvey were proposed as two of the possible makeweights, 19-year-old Wilson is the third young Red to be linked with a move to Bloomfield Road as part of the package for Adam.

Blackpool would still be looking at an £8million fee for Adam's signature but an agreement to release the Liverpool trio on season long loans would speed up the protracted transfer of the Scot to Merseyside.

Blackpool appear to have already found a replacement for Adam with yesterday's signing of attacking midfielder Bojan Djordjic from Hungarian side Videoton on a free transfer.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is understood to be willing to loan out Scotland international Wilson - a £5million signing from Rangers last summer - after his former club expressed a desire to have him back at Ibrox for next season.

Liverpool had hoped the signing of Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson earlier this month would have kick-started a rush of transfer activity but reported targets Phil Jones and Connor Wickham have gone elsewhere - the acquisition of Adam has therefore taken on greater urgency.

Ipswich striker Wickham, who emerged as one of the summer's hottest properties and was on the Anfield wish-list, signed for Sunderland yesterday in an £8.1million deal with the fee potentially rising as high as £12million with various add-ons.

Rumour Mill: Liverpool to secure the £8M transfer of Charlie Adam

Liverpool are expecting to clinch a deal for Charlie Adam this weekend, unless Aston Villa delay proceedings by turning negotiations into a bidding war.

Damien Comolli, the Reds' director of football, will press ahead over the next 48 hours in an attempt to add Adam to the recent capture of Jordan Henderson. A meeting with Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston is booked, and Liverpool hope to conclude an £8 million transfer.

Charlie Adam - I'm going to Anfield Oyston revealed 11 days ago that he had held initial talks with the Anfield club, saying in The Gazette: "We've had a few very preliminary discussions and enquiries but nothing of any substance."

Liverpool first lodged an £8 million bid in January, only to find the Tangerines holding out for £12 million. Oyston had hoped Adam would keep his club in the Premier League, but now he is left on weaker ground to barter, with the Scotland international desperate to stay in England's top flight.

The most likely scenario to scupper Liverpool's plans would be a last-ditch hijack attempt from Aston Villa, whose new boss Alex McLeish used to work with Adam at Rangers. Blackpool would hope a rival bid would drive up Liverpool's offer, which is expected to start as low as £6.5 million.

Adam is one of a handful of players wanted by Kenny Dalglish, who also has Comolli negotiating for Ipswich's Connor Wickham, Arsenal's Gael Clichy, and Aston Villa's Stewart Downing. The Reds are already believed to have had offers of £5 million and £12 million rejected for Clichy and Downing respectively.

Adam's arrival would create an overstaffing of midfielders at Anfield, where Alberto Aquilani has returned after Juventus cooled interest in a £14 million deal. Portugal international Raul Meireles has also been linked to the Turin club, but no formal movements have materialised.

Rumour Mill: Charlie Adam set to sign for Liverpool FC

Liverpool's pursuit of Charlie Adam should finally pay dividends this week.

Charlie Adam Anfield boss Kenny Dalglish looks set to land his man at last, having chased the classy midfielder virtually from the day he returned to the club in January.

And the Merseyside club could make it a double deal, with Dalglish also inching closer to bringing England winger Stewart Downing to the club.

The Aston Villa star is still waiting for his club to appoint a new manager, but he is desperately keen to join Liverpool, and is hopeful a transfer can be agreed as soon as possible.

Adam could make the switch even sooner.

The Scot was distraught when what appeared a dream move to Anfield was dashed as Blackpool refused to do business, even at an inflated price of £10million.

But Dalglish's interest has never wavered, and discreet talks have continued this week, with the midfielder returning from holiday in Dubai to hasten proceedings.

Blackpool have played hardball in negotiations, with chairman Karl Oyston insisting he is under no pressure to sell, despite the player entering the last year of his contract.

But eventually, they are expected to agree a fee, with Liverpool now confident the Scot will finally join by the end of the week, in a deal that could eventually reach £9million.

Liverpool swoop for Seasiders midfielder

Sky Sports News sources understand Liverpool will hold talks with Blackpool's Charlie Adam later this week.

Charlie Adam The Scotland international has long been a target of the Anfield club and they failed in an attempt to agree a deal in the January transfer window.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish's interest in his compatriot is not thought to have ended and he is again attempting to secure the playmaker, with Sky Bet suspending their market earlier on Monday.

Sky sources understand discussions will consequently take place with relegated Blackpool and Adam later this week.

The Reds have already signed Jordan Henderson from Sunderland and are expected to continue to remodel their squad this summer.

Rumour Mill: More players to be signed by Liverpool FC this week

Liverpool could be set to step up their summer transfer dealings with moves for as many as five new players this week.

Arsenal left-back Gael Clichy has emerged as a serious target for Kenny Dalglish, whilst the Anfield outfit are also weighing up bids for Aston Villa's Stewart Downing, Blackpool captain Charlie Adam, Ipswich forward Connor Wickham and Southampton starlet Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Dalglish made his first signing of the summer last week with the £16m capture of Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson, and is eager to oversee a serious revamp of his squad, ahead of what promises to be a pivotal season at Anfield.

French international Clichy has just one year remaining on his contract at Arsenal, and is understood to have informed the Gunners that he has no plans to renew his deal in North London. The 25-year-old is valued by manager Arsene Wenger at around £7m.

Italian sides Inter Milan and Roma have expressed an interest, but Liverpool would have the upper hand due to the presence of Damien Comolli, the club's Director of Football. Comolli was integral to Clichy's move to Arsenal from French club Cannes in 2003, and the full-back is believed to be keen to secure a switch to Merseyside.

Downing, Villa's Player of the Season, is also eager to link up with Dalglish's side. The 26-year-old is another player who has been on Comolli's radar for some time, stretching back to Comolli's time at Tottenham, but is valued by Villa at around £18m, with Liverpool hoping to pay closer to £15m for the England international.

In the case of Adam, it could be much simpler. The Scotland international was desperate to join the Liverpool in January, but a move fell through after the Reds were unable to meet Blackpool's £12m asking price.

But with the Tangerines having been relegated from the Premier League, and with the 25-year-old having expressed his desire to quit the club, Adam will now be available for around £8m, meaning a move to Anfield is a likelihood rather than a possibility.

And with Dalglish and Comolli keen to infuse their squad with youthful, English talent, moves for the highly-rated duo of Wickham and Oxlade-Chamberlain have also been lined up.

Wickham, 18, is valued by Ipswich at £10m, and has been attracting interest from Arsenal, Tottenham and Sunderland of late. But the 6ft 3in striker, who is away with England's under-21s at the European Championships in Denmark, is believed to favour a move to Merseyside.

England Under-19 star Oxlade-Chamberlain, 17, was watched several times by Comolli last season, and has been a £10m target for Arsenal. But with Southampton holding out for closer to £12m for the starlet, and the Gunners wary of spending such a fee on an untested youngster, a switch to Liverpool is a possibility.

Meanwhile, young goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi has revealed the club are in the market for an experienced back-up shot-stopper, expected to be Roma's Doni, as he prepares to leave on loan.

"I had already been thinking about my possible departure in March although that time it wasn't a topic that Brad Friedel or Doni may sign for Liverpool," said the 20-year-old.

"Of course it doesn't mean that I want my contract to be terminated because the team rely on me. When my agents and I indicated to the club officials that I would like to move to another club on loan they agreed with us and thought the same.

"The club said they rely on me for a long period and it made me very proud. But they added if I go then a seasoned goalkeeper may arrive at the club, which is understandable.

"The best way for me to improve is to play regularly. I don't know where I will play but talks are going well. I have offers from England and also from outside of England. I hope within 10 days or two weeks it will be a fact where I will continue my career - on loan."

Goal Highlights: Blackpool 2-1 Liverpool

The Reds season misery continues again with Kenny Dalglish’s first Premier League game away to Blackpool yesterday. Liverpool struck early in the match at Bloomfield Road but went down 1-2 to the Seasiders yet again.

Clearly, Dalglish has had got the players’ confidence and commitment back onto the pitch but we still lack some personnel to the overall playing squad. It also shows that the Reds has missed Gerrard’s influence on the pitch.

Match Preview: Blackpool v Liverpool

Blackpool v Liverpool Barclays Premier League
Venue: Bloomfield Road

Date: Wednesday, 12 January

Kick-off: 2000 GMT

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway will reshuffle his pack after making nine changes for the FA Cup defeat to Southampton.

Elliot Grandin is available after a hamstring injury but David Carney is on international duty at the Asian Cup.

Liverpool's Steven Gerrard is banned while Glen Johnson will be a doubt if his partner has not given birth.

Joe Cole has an ankle problem and Paul Konchesky has a dead leg - both will be given late fitness tests.

Blackpool:

Injured/unavailable: Basham (leg), Carney (international duty), Clarke, Gilks & Martin (all knee), Harewood (hamstring)

Liverpool:

Suspended: Gerrard (three matches)

Doubtful: Cole (ankle), Johnson (personal reasons), Konchesky (dead leg)

Injured: Carragher (shoulder), Spearing (ankle)

Match officials:

Referee: Michael Oliver

Assistant referees: Mick McDonough & David Richardson

Fourth official: Anthony Taylor

When Kenny Dalglish was last in charge of Liverpool, Blackpool were in the old Fourth Division - now the two Premier League teams sit side by side on 25 points.

Dalglish will find many other changes since his last stint in charge of the Reds but their spirited 10-man display in the FA Cup defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford will give Liverpool fans hope that he still retains his golden touch.

Having come away beaten but not bowed from the largest stadium in the Premier League, Dalglish now takes his side to the smallest, Bloomfield Road, in a re-arranged game after their Boxing Day clash was postponed by the weather.

It will be at places like this that Liverpool's season - and Dalglish's future - will be decided. Just one win away from home this season has left the Reds only four points clear of the relegation zone.

Blackpool, who were also knocked out of the FA Cup at the weekend, have the opposite problem - their home form is the worst in the Premier League.

Ian Holloway describes Dalglish as "an absolute hero of mine" but will be going all out for a famous double after the Seasiders' win at Anfield earlier this season, a result which contributed to the premature departure of Dalglish's predecessor Roy Hodgson.
