Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp admits he is unsure if he will be able to sign Emmanuel Adebayor on a permanent basis.

The Togo ace is on loan from Manchester City and his form has impressed all at White Hart Lane with a potential permanent move a possibility although Redknapp doesn't know at this stage if it can happen.

"He scored two goals last week against Swansea and he has been excellent, but whether it's possible to do a deal, I wouldn't be sure," said the Spurs boss.

"Manu is on loan at the moment and that's where we're at.

"The chairman will deal with (any negotiations) at the end of this season. I wouldn't have a clue whether (a permanent transfer) is a possibility or not."

Redknapp also suggested that Adebayor may have to leave City this summer in order for his career to flourish.

"His future doesn't seem to be there," Redknapp added. "He probably needs to move on."
