The Clarets are keen to add some experience to their midfield after Joey Barton opted to turn down the offer of a new deal and headed to Glasgow Rangers.

Adam is the player that Burnley boss Sean Dyche wants to replace him but there is little chance of a deal going through as Stoke have no intention of cashing in.

It was thought that Adam could be open to a move as it would mean regular first-team football at Turf Moor, but Hughes says the Scotland international remains firmly in his plans.

“I think there was a little bit of interest in Charlie, but we haven’t encouraged that,” he told Stoke Sentinel. “Charlie is a part of what we are doing here moving forward, so that’s not a situation that will develop.”

Much could depend on who Stoke sign over the coming weeks but for now Burnley will have to look elsewhere in their search for a new midfielder.
