Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam has targeted a top 10 finish in the Premier League next season under new manager Mark Hughes. Adam struggled for regular first team football following his move from Liverpool two years ago but he has paid tribute to former boss Tony Pulis and the job he did for the club. Pulis departed at the end of last season following a total of 10 years - over two spells - at the Britannia Stadium where he helped establish the club as a regular fixture in the Premier League. "It's a fresh start for everybody and we look forward to it," Adam told Sky Sports News. "Tony Pulis has done a good job at this club and he deserves the utmost respect and credit. "If it wasn't for him this club wouldn't be in the Premier League. "So that's the way it goes and we look forward to a new fresh challenge and the top 10 should be a realistic opportunity for us." The former Aston Villa coach left The County Ground last weekend and Tisdale, the longest-serving boss in the Football League, has been linked with the post. But Tisdale has distanced himself and reiterated his love for the Grecians. "I seem to get linked every time. It is my local club I suppose," he told the Express & Echo. "I get asked this question every time and if anyone is going to persuade me to leave here, then it needs to be good because I love it here. It is a great place to work."
PLAYERS: Tony Pulis
