Harry Redknapp is at it again according to the Daily Mail and that has not shocked fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern one little bit.
The Queens Park Rangers manager has spoken about the potential of landing Tottenham forward Emmanuel Adebayor on loan this season and admitted that he would jump at the chance.
Redknapp of course knows the forward well and has worked with him in the past and claimed that: “He’d be a great loan, that’s for sure.
“I don’t know what will happen with him. He’s a good player but it’s up to Tottenham, they have lots of good players.
“He can’t go on loan in the Premier League, he can only go into the Championship but whether he’d want to do that – it would be difficult I think.”
The player himself has of course been suffering from personal tragedy and even before that was on the fringes of Andre Villas Boas’ plans, especially with new boy Roberto Soldado doing so well.
AVB himself was asked about the striker’s future and admitted that even he did not know what was actually happening. He confessed: “At the moment Ade’s not with us. We have granted him authorisation to stay until Monday in his country for personal reasons.
“Up until when I find it appropriate, he will train with the development team, because he was a couple of weeks late in relation to the rest of the (first) team, bearing in mind his personal tragedy. Will he play for Spurs again? There is a possibility.”
As one of our punters quips over pie and mash (our weekend special) he notes that Adebayor blows hot and cold at best – and we know that when he is on the fringes of a side or fighting for his future he can actually play rather well.
Add to that the few players that Spurs actually have who can do a job up top, not to mention the injuries and suspensions that can rack up throughout the season and this means that AVB could well have to turn to Adebayor once again.
How realistic is the prospect of Tottenham loaning Adebayor to QPR? Let us know your thoughts below.
