Charlie Adam has cast doubt over his future at Blackpool by expressing a desire to remain in the Premier League next season.
The Seasiders lost their fight against the drop when defeat to Manchester United sealed their relegation from the top flight on the final day of the campaign.
Boss Ian Holloway is keen to retain the services of the midfielder, with the club this week confirming they have activated an option for a further 12 months on his contract.
Adam was linked with Liverpool and Tottenham in January and admits he is desperate to play at the highest level possible, while also acknowledging the major role Blackpool has played in his career.
He said: ''My future is that I want to play in the Premier League. I want to play at the top and hopefully the opportunity comes. At the end of the day, my future will get sorted one way or another. It's not me who makes that decision.
''The club have been fantastic with me and since I went there, since day one, I've thoroughly enjoyed it. It's important that, whatever happens, I will always remember my time at Blackpool.''
