Transfer news from Tottenham, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, West Brom and West Ham United.

West Brom eye Adebayor loan deal

According to the Daily Mail, West Bromwich Albion are considering a move to sign Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor on loan.

The Togolese forward, 30, has been out of the picture at White Hart Lane for large parts of this season, largely down to the form of Harry Kane, but their Premier League rivals are believed to considering a move to sign the ex-Arsenal striker on loan.

Queens Park Rangers have also been linked with a move to sign Adebayor, with manager Harry Redknapp familiar with the striker from his time at Tottenham.

Crystal Palace chairman confirms left back transfer

Speculation in recent days has suggested that Crystal Palace were closing in on a deal to bring Lille left back Pape Souare to Selhurst Park.

Now, Palace chairman Steve Parish has confirmed the deal on Twitter, posting a picture of himself alongside the Senegalese international.

The 24-year-old joins Yaya Sanogo, Jordon Mutch and Shola Ameobi in arriving at Palace under new manager Alan Pardew, and projects to be the club's starting left back.

Hendrie reacts to signing West Ham agreement

West Ham United confirmed a deal to bring Hamilton left back Stephen Hendrie to Upton Park on Friday, with the 20-year-old signing a pre-contract agreement to join the Hammers on a free transfer this summer - and the young Scot was delighted with the deal.

"I'm absolutely buzzing," Hendrie told the club's official website. "The last few days have been busy, but now that I'm down here and I've signed, I cannot wait to start in the summer.

"I'm thrilled to bits. I can't believe that it's happened. West Ham is such a massive club with a massive fan base and I just cannot wait to get started. I'm looking forward to it," he added. "I think the Premier League's the best league in the world and you want to play at the highest level you possibly can. Since I was a kid I always wanted to play in the Premier League and I've got a fantastic chance to do that now."
