28-Year-Old Midfielder Stoke City Premier
Adam's appeal of a three-match ban for stepping on Arsenal's Olivier Giroud has been rejected, The Guardian reports. Adam will now miss Premier League matches against Norwich, West Ham, and Aston Villa.
This is a solid blow for Stoke, who have enjoyed Adam's recent good form. He will be eligible to return March 29 when Stoke host Hull City at Britannia Stadium.
