Redknapp back in for Adebayor

Harry Redknapp is considering a move for 30 year-old Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor to strengthen his attack.

Redknapp back in for Adebayor


QPR were promoted via the playoffs and Harry Redknapp is looking to build a team that will keep them in the Premier League. Last time they splashed the cash and bought a bunch of mercenaries who weren't interested in anything but their wage packet and the club was promptly relegated.

This time around Redknapp isn't going to make the mistake his predecessor made and has targeted Adebayor because he knows what he'll get, a proven quality striker who likes and wants to be a starter every week.

Back in December Redknapp tried to take Adebayor and Harry Kane on loan opening discussions ahead of the winter transfer window but his overtures were rejected by Daniel Levy, who wanted Adebayor reintroduced into consideration for selection, something former Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas was dead against.

Back in May the Togo international insisted he was staying at White Hart Lane.

“I will be a Tottenham player. At the moment I have got two years left on my contract. But what happens if I wake up and what has happened to me in the past has happened again?

“What if the chairman called me and if the new manager says about moving me on, what do you want me to do?

“But it is like I said. At the moment I can’t consider going anywhere.”

He has put last season behind him, a season that saw him net 14 times in 25 games, preferring to see it as a positive and look to the future.

“It’s got to be positive. This season we’ve had to dig deep. It’s been a strange season, where we’ve started games poorly and gone 1-0 down in a few seconds against teams like City, Liverpool and West Brom.

“There were a lot of incidents of that. We gave away a lot of goals, but I don’t think that will happen again next season.

“A lot of the lads will have a season under their belts and now have more experience.

“We are improving as a team and starting to control games. Next season can only be better.”

A divider of Spurs fans opinion, one minute he's happy and a top quality striker but then as soon as he feels he is not first choice he throws a strop and a totally different ineffective player turns up.
