The England Under-21 international was Kenny Dalglish’s first signing of the summer as the Reds moved ahead of Mancheseter City and Arsenal to get their man.
A versatile and energetic performer, the Wearsider has settled in on Merseyside, and scored his first Liverpool goal in the recent win over Bolton.
Liverpool had to wait six months to get their man, having failed in a bid to sign the Scotland midfielder back in January.
Adam’s range of passing and accuracy from set-pieces have already been in evidence at Anfield, where he has formed a promising partnership with Lucas Leiva.

Eyebrows were raised at the fee paid for the former Middlesbrough man, but his performances since his arrival have quietened the doubters significantly.
A Brazilian international, Doni arrived at Anfield to provide competition for first-choice goalkeeper Pepe Reina.
He will hope to avoid following in the footsteps of forgotten understudies Patrice Luzi, Pegguy Arphexad, Daniele Padelli, Charles Itandje, Diego Cavalieri and Brad Jones.
From: Newcastle United
Another long-time target of the Reds, the Spanish full-back sealed his switch to Anfield early in time for the new season, and has not looked back since.
Pacy, composed and solid in defence, the former Villarreal looks like he will nail down what has been a problematic position for Liverpool in recent years.
A towering central defender who helped Uruguay to glory in the Copa America, Coates was persuaded by friend Luis Suarez to snub Manchester City and Atletico Madrid in favour of a move to Anfield.
From: Manchester City.
The Welshman made a shock return to Liverpool late last night. Signed by Rafa Benitez for £6m from Blackburn in 2006. Scored nine goals in 42 appearances before moving to West Ham for £7.5million. Could prove a valuable and experienced part of Kenny Dalglish’s new-look squad.
To: Leicester City. Fee: £1.5m
A remnant of the ill-fated Roy Hodgson era, left-back Konchesky was offloaded to Sven-Goran Eriksson’s ambitious Championship.
To: VFL Wolfsburg. Fee: Free
The Greek defender did a job at Anfield, but was never likely to survive Kenny Dalglish’s squad reshape. A free transfer to Germany suited all parties.
To: Norwich City. Fee: £850,000
A promising talent, but had fallen way down the Anfield pecking order. Paul Lambert’s newly-promoted Canaries could prove an ideal environment for the 20-year-old.
To: Sporting Lisbon. Fee: Undisclosed
The Argentine left-back was once a bright prospect at the club, but lost his way after a promising debut campaign.
To: Rennes. Fee: £1m

To: Evian. Fee: Undisclosed
Another who failed to shine after arriving at Anfield last summer, the Dane made just 21 appearances.
To: Bolton. Fee: £4m
A £1.5m signing who provided value for money during some difficult times. The 22-year-old striker was never likely to usurp Andy Carroll, Luis Suarez or Dirk Kuyt in Dalglish’s starting line-up.
To: Lille. Fee: loan
The former England international heads for France after a miserable first year at Anfield following his arrival from Chelsea.
To: AC Milan. Fee: loan
The Italian returned home and Milan will buy him on a permanent basis once he’s made 25 appearances.
