Manager Tony Pulis said he was delighted to sign a midfielder who would bring to the side a proven goal threat.

"It's no secret that we've been looking to bring more goals to the squad and Charlie is a fantastic signing in that respect," he said.
Adam said he was joining a club "on the up".
"I'm delighted to be here and to be given the opportunity to work with the club, the manager and the players," he told City's official website today.
"This club's on the up and it's great to be a part of it. I hope I can help them to improve upon the success which has been achieved over the past few years.
"Hopefully, we can have a successful time together. I can do this club proud and I'm looking forward to the chance of playing in front of their passionate supporters."
Scottish international Adam joined Liverpool from Blackpool for £7m in July 2011.
He made 37 appearances for the Reds and was part of the team that lifted the Carling Cup at Wembley.
