CHARLIE Adam has completed a move to his boyhood club Dundee.

The former Scotland international had a trial at Wanderers last month but failed to earn a contract and went to train at Dens Park.

Adam, aged 34, was praised by his old Blackpool team-mate Ian Evatt for setting “high standards” on the training ground and also played for an hour alongside some of the squad’s younger players in a friendly defeat at Wigan Athletic.

He had not hidden his desire to continue his playing career and after his Bolton trial ended, said he had hoped to earn a deal with the club he supported as a youngster.

“At Dundee it’s an opportunity to go to a club with the young players there, I can go in and try and help them and give them my experience,” he said.

“The discussions are taking time and we’re talking regularly and we’ll see how the deal will end up.

“It’d be good for me personally but it would also be good for the club and the supporters if we can get a lift.”

Adam, who played 27 times in the Championship for Reading last season, has signed a two-year deal with Dundee.
