Redknapp hopes Spurs can find cash to sign Man City's Adebayor

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp hopes they can find the money to sign permanently on-loan Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp hopes they can find the money to sign permanently on-loan Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

He would love to sign the striker on a new deal but admits wages of around £200,000-a-week paid by City would be impossible to match.

Redknapp said: "I'd be talking rubbish if I said people wanted to stay at Tottenham because we play good football.

"If you want to keep the best players, we must find a way of doing a deal that's near to what they can earn elsewhere.

"We're not in a position to pay £40million or £200k-a-week, we don't do it.

"The chairman Daniel Levy doesn't run it like that and rightly so."
