Wages problematic for Ade move

ESPNsoccernet staff

Emmanuel Adebayor's impressive start to his loan spell with Tottenham Hotspur has already led to talk of a permanent move from Manchester City, but the player would have to accept a drop in wages to make the move happen.

• Redknapp still wants Cahill

Adebayor is Spurs' top scorer with three Premier League goals in four appearances, and he also has two assists to his name. But boss Harry Redknapp played down the chances of buying the striker.

Redknapp said: "If Emmanuel maintains his current form I would love to keep him but his wages are going to be a major stumbling block, that's for sure.

"I have no idea how much we are paying towards his wages at the moment as the chairman [Daniel Levy] deals with those issues but I suspect they are massively subsidised by City.

"The only way we can realistically get a deal done is if Emmanuel is prepared to take a substantial pay-cut and put his football before money."
