Former Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam is reportedly interested in taking up a role as a player-manager for Scottish side Dundee, according to the Daily Record.
Adam was born and raised in Dundee and keen on taking up the vacancy left after Jim McIntyre was sacked on Sunday following their relegation to the second-tier.
The now 33-year-old graduated through the club’s academy until 2003 when he was poached by Rangers for their under-20 side.
He spent six years in Glasgow before he was signed by Blackpool in 2009 where he went on to help Ian Holloway’s side achieve a shock promotion to the Premier League.
It has been a disappointing season for Adam at the Bet365 stadium, making just 12 Championship appearances as the Potters slumped to a bottom-half finish despite being tipped heavily for promotion.
Nathan Jones, who took over from Gary Rowett in January, seems to have made it clear that the midfielder is surplus to requirements and will leave the club in July after seven years.
It is good to see that Adam is already thinking about his next steps and this could be a smart move.
Dundee is a club he clearly knows well and would be given a good amount of time to find his feet and style as a manager.
