Tottenham manager in the dark over Emmanuel Adebayor future

It is easy to forget that Emmanuel Adebayor is a Manchester City player and perhaps the Togolese international might have helped his parent club win the Premier League title in a parallel universe.

However, Adebayor is instead enjoying a season-long loan spell at White Hart Lane which has largely been a success, with the former Arsenal forward spearheading the Spurs attack for most of the season and scoring 14 goals in the process.

Harry Redknapp would dearly like to keep the 28-year-old on the books at Tottenham, although he is unsure whether Adebayor will remain in the summer, especially with the player earning a reported £170,000 per week at the momnent.

The Tottenham manager said: “He scored two goals last week against Swansea and he has been excellent, but whether it’s possible to do a deal, I wouldn’t be sure.

“Manu is on loan at the moment and that’s where we’re at.

“The chairman will deal with (any negotiations) at the end of this season. I wouldn’t have a clue whether (a permanent transfer) is a possibility or not.”

Redknapp seems pretty certain that Adebayor doesn’t have a future at Manchester City so it would seem to come down to whether a club can agree personal terms with the player.

“His future doesn’t seem to be there,” Redknapp added. “He probably needs to move on.

“City have just gone through a dicky little spell recently but they have lots of good strikers there.

“If you look at the quality they have up front, they are full of top players.”
