Report: West Ham back in the hunt for Tottenham outcast Emmanuel Adebayor

Emmanuel Adebayor

The out-of-favour Spurs striker looks almost certain to leave before September 2nd.

Emmanuel Adebayor’s potential move to West Ham is back on, with the club close to sealing a season-long loan deal, according to the Mirror.

The Telegraph last week reported that the Hammers had pulled out of a bid to sign the Togolese striker but talks are believed to have been re-opened over the weekend.

The Mirror’s report claims that Spurs have softened their stance on part-subsidising the 31-year old’s wages and now appear willing to do just that, to ensure he leaves the club.

West Ham’s striker crisis is clear to see, with Enner Valencia, Andy Carroll and Mauro Zarate all currently out with injuries, and reinforcements are expected before the close of the window.

Adebayor on the other hand, has no future at White Hart Lane and is thought to favour a stay in London, which should grease the wheels on a potential move to the Boleyn Ground.

It looks like being a deal to suit all parties and West Ham's re-emergence as front-runners will provide hope to the Spurs hierarchy that this particular striker saga will soon reach its conclusion.
