Spurs ready to sell Adebayor

Spurs fans in the Football Transfer Tavern have been left bemused by reports that Tottenham are ready to sell Emmanuel Adebayor.

The striker has been playing well alongside Jermain Defoe in recent weeks after Andre Villas-Boas switched to a 4-4-2 formation.

Despite this, Paul Hetherington from the Daily Star believes that Spurs are willing to listen to any offers for the Togolese frontman, sparking renewed interest from Harry Redknapp at QPR, who managed him last season.

The 28-year-old only moved permanently to White Hart Lane in the summer after a successful loan switch where he scored 18 goals for Redknapp’s former side.

This season has been less productive for Adebayor and his goal against Reading on New Year’s Day was only his second league goal of the season. This has led to Villas-Boas reassessing his options in attack with Brazilian Leandro Damiao being lined up to replace the Togo international.

Villas-Boas admitted this week that he would have some interest in the 23-year-old striker, saying:  “Damiao had a spectacular Olympics. We follow the best players and youngsters and Leandro fits this profile.

“He has had injuries after London 2012 but he is a player who is always on our list.”
