Tottenham media round-up: Adebayor in talks after passing medical, Kane backed to repeat heroics

White Hart Lane 5

A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Tottenham Hotspur this Tuesday evening.

Emmanuel Adebayor's proposed move to Aston Villa has been the subject of speculation suggesting that it may have hit a stumbling block, according to the Daily Mail, but they have reported that he has passed a medical at Villa Park.

The Mail reported this morning that Adebayor has been holding 'heart-to-heart' talks with Villa boss Tim Sherwood as the move has yet to be confirmed. The forward is expected to make the switch on a season-long loan, and has rejected a late approach from Crystal Palace.

Former Tottenham striker Teddy Sheringham has said that he doesn't think Harry Kane is a one-season wonder after an outstanding season last term, where he found the net 31 times in all competitions, and says he is at the right place to continue his development.

In an interview with, he said: “When you have the qualities Harry has I’d thoroughly expect him to do exactly what he did last year. I don’t think he’s a flash in the pan or a one-season wonder. I really think he’s the real deal and wants to learn and if it doesn’t come as easy for him as last year he’ll find a way to do it in other ways.

“He’s at where he’s at and that’s a very sensible thing to do at the moment. He should be honoured still to play for Tottenham – and the way that he speaks he is."

In the same interview, Sheringham did express some concern for the side's defence, suggesting they needed a defender in the mould of Ledley King to help them tighten up.

Finally, Harry Kane himself has warned the rest of the Premier League that he is no one-season wonder, and the 22-year-old seems confident that he can find the net time and again against the big sides.

He is quoted in the London Evening Standard as saying: "I can take a lot of confidence into this year, knowing that I can do it against the big teams and anyone in the Premier League.

"So I’ve got to try and keep working hard and keep trying to improve, and take that into the games and, hopefully, keep scoring.”
