Harry rules out Adebayor move

Redknapp insists he is not interested in unsettled Manchester City forward Emmanuel Adebayor.

Adebayor is keen to leave Eastlands having slipped down the pecking order this season, and Spurs have repeatedly been linked with a move for the former Arsenal man. But Redknapp told TalkSport:

“Absolute nonsense. I’ve never made any enquiries for Adebayor whatsoever.

“I keep seeing in the papers that we’re after him. I’ve never ever asked about him or enquired about him.”

Reports over the weekend suggested Manchester City could use Adebayor as part of a deal to land Spurs star Gareth Bale, but Redknapp has no plans on parting with the Welshman. He added:

“We don’t want to sell Gareth Bale.

“At the end of the day it won’t be my decision, it’ll be above my head but it would take an absolute fortune one day to buy him.

“For me, at this particular time, he’s got to be the Footballer of the Year in this country. I can’t think of anyone who’s done as well as him.

“He’s not a player that we would really want to sell. You’ve got to hang onto your best players. If Tottenham want to be a club that’s always looking to get in Champions League football you can’t sell those players.”
