Redknapp: Unsure On Adebayor Deal | Rules Out Striker Move

By on August 25, 2011

Harry Redknapp remains in the dark over Emmanuel Adebayor’s potential move to White Hart Lane.

The former Togo frontman is wanted by the Spurs boss and admits the former Arsenal striker has a point to prove after a disappointing rein at Manchester City.

“The chairman is dealing with that so I haven’t got a clue where it’s at,” he said on Sky Sports.

“Whether it is done, nearly done or not being done, I really don’t know.”

Redknapp regards Adebayor highly and has no doubt the laky forward could make an immediate impact at Tottenham.

“He’s a good player, a real talent, there is no doubt about that. If we could get him at it, he could come here and be a big success,” said Redknapp.

“He’s got a big point to prove, really, he’s got to get back to the form he showed at Arsenal.

“He certainly showed it at Real Madrid last year. We couldn’t handle him out in Madrid unfortunately. He’s a real talent.”

Redknapp doesn’t believe the former Gunner will have any problems with the Spurs faithful as long as the striker performs.

“It depends how the player does, doesn’t it? William Gallas came here last year and did fantastic for us, so the crowd took to him,” Redknapp explained.

“The Arsenal fans hate Adebayor, so I am sure that will make the Tottenham fans like him.

“If he comes here and gets goals and plays well, they will love him. If he is useless, they will slaughter him.”

Harry also refuted claims that Peter Crouch will be leaving this summer.

“No. Robbie’s gone, obviously, but at the movement we are OK and I don’t see any movement,” he stressed.

“I keep seeing about Crouchy but I don’t know where that’s come from. I love Crouchy, there’s nothing there as far as I know.

“Jermain is playing at the moment and looking sharp.”

    Forget Modric, he’s staying, at least for this season.
    Damiao, Damiao, Damiao two more goals for Independiente, what more can I say except buy him now because next year he’s out of our price range . . .

    It’s spelt “reign”, not “rein”. If you’re going to be a have-a-go journalist then at least learn to spell.
