Tottenham boss Redknapp still hopeful of Adebayor deal
Harry Redknapp is keen to sign Emmanuel Adebayor on a permanent deal - but admits wages could be a problem
Harry Redknapp admits Emmanuel Adebayor’s high wages could prove a stumbling block to a potential deal to keep the striker at Tottenham Hotspur on a permanent deal.
The Togolese striker has enjoyed an impressive campaign at White Hart Lane since joining on loan from Manchester City last summer, scoring 17 goals in 36 appearances for Redknapp’s men.
Redknapp has made no secret of his desire to land the 28-year-old on a permanent deal – but the Spurs boss admits the negotiations over a possible transfer would be handled by chairman Daniel Levy.
“We love him here,” Redknapp said. “He’s been great for us.
“Only the chairman can deal with that one. He can deal with the financial situation. His [Adebayor’s] wages would be a big problem.
“But if Daniel can pull off a deal with City like last year, we would love to have him here.”
