Aston Villa fans debate signing Emmanuel Adebayor on Twitter

Emmanuel Adebayor

The recently released Tottenham Hotspur striker has been talked up by Villa boss Tim Sherwood.

So Emmanuel Adebayor's Tottenham journey is finally over - but it seems the frustration and unending questions surrounding the 31-year-old striker will simply be passed on to another set of fans.

Indeed, after Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood's comments suggesting he would take the Togolose forward back in a heartbeat, as reported by Sky Sports among others, supporters in the Midlands have got to debating whether he would be right for the Villans.

According to the Daily Mail, Adebayor can't sign for another club right now as he isn't yet registered with any squad in the Premier League. But he can join another top-flight side in January.

Could that side be Aston Villa?

Supporters are naturally torn. The Villa faithful appear to want another centre-forward as those brought in this summer haven't shown any signs of being prolific Premier League goalscorers just yet. As evidenced by his time at Spurs, though, Adebayor is a controversial character - and many won't be happy if the controversy that follows him comes to Villa Park.

Here's what Aston Villa fans have been saying on Twitter, then, following the 31-year-old's Tottenham release:
