Liverpool remained a 10/1 long shot to win the 2012 Premier League after signing Scottish midfielder Charlie Adam from relegated Blackpool.

There was some sign the Adam transfer has helped shorten the odds somewhat as a majority of bookmakers previously had Liverpool at 11/1. 

Adam was shortlisted for the Premier League Player of the Year award last season.  He had scored 12 goals in 35 appearances. 

Adam heads into Liverpool knowing he must win over fans after he was responsible for the penalty shot against his new team as a Blackpool player that resulted in a shock Blackpool 2-1 win last season.

Adam had this to offer:

"Since I've known about Liverpool's interest I've been looking at the website and obviously playing here last season, the passion of the supporters, they know what it means and they're there to support the team.

"That's what you want as a player, to know the fans will back you to the hilt through thick and thin. I tasted Anfield last year, scoring here was an unbelievable feeling and hopefully I've got many more days like that as a Liverpool player."

Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli added: "I'm very pleased. It's been a long chase since the end of January but we've always kept our interest because we knew he was a quality player.

"We knew he was very, very, very keen on coming here, he wanted to wear the Liverpool shirt. For Kenny, he was a priority and we've done everything we could to get him. We are delighted."

Blackpool is believed to have accepted a £7.5 million bid rising to £8 million depending on appearances.

Charlie Adam would pay 100 to 1 odds if he ends up being the top goal scorer of the year.
