Andre Villas-Boas is willing to let Tottenham misfit Emmanuel Adebayor out on loan – to save him from life with the reserves. Spurs coach Villas-Boas thinks the big striker could do with games at Championship level to keep him sharp and in the shop window.
Adebayor was a target for several clubs in the transfer deadline window, but proved hard to shift – and now is due to train with the youth squad as of this week. However AVB would open the exit door to a loan if terms can be agreed with Spurs supremo Daniel Levy.
Harry Redknapp’s QPR are first in the queue, but the north London club will not do them any favours unless they offer to pay a big chunk of Adebayor’s £160,000-a-week wages.
Other Championship sides have inquired, with Owen Coyle’s Wigan keen if Togo striker Adebayor is prepared to move from London.
