Charlie Adam has spoke highly of Liverpool’s January signing Ben Davies.

The former-Stoke midfielder enjoyed a year at Anfield under Kenny Dalglish after impressing at Seasiders Blackpool.

However, he failed to impress for the Reds and was sold to Stoke City by Brendan Rodgers.

Ben Davies was a deadline day signing for Jurgen Klopp alongside Ozun Kabak from Schalke.

The 25-year-old impressed for Preston North End, a club he had turned out for since he was 13.

Adam, 35, is currently playing in Scotland for his hometown club Dundee, he was on Sky Sports’ Football Show, he said:

“It’s a big step up [from Championship to the Premier League], I went to Liverpool at 25 years of age, his dreams have come true.

“When an opportunity like Liverpool comes up and like Jurgen said Liverpool wouldn’t normally be buying players from Preston.

“He’s a left-sided centre-back, over a 100 games for Preston, good on the ball.

I think he’s a good fit, a sensible signing for Liverpool.

“It’s an opportunity for him to go and play in the Premier League and I hope he does well.

“For me he was the best centre-half in the Championship.”

Liverpool face Brighton on Wednesday night, Jurgen Klopp has admitted it is unlikely that both Kabak and Davies will play.

He has played 19 games for Alex Neil’s side this season, he missed eight through a hamstring injury in October.

However, he played every minute from the start of December till their 1-0 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

The Reds have a tricky February fixture list with Manchester City on Saturday before they face Leicester, RB Leipzig, Everton and Sheffield United.

With Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip sidelined for the rest of the season, it leaves makeshift centre-back Jordan Henderson and Nat Phillips as the only other two defenders.
