Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes a deal to bring Emmanuel Adebayor to White Hart Lane ‘probably will happen’.
The Togolese star has been cast out at Manchester City with the Eastlands club keen to ship him out this summer.
Spurs have been linked with a move for the former Arsenal star for much of the summer but the players’ wages have proven a major stumbling block in any deal.
However, talks between both parties are said to be coming along nicely and Redknapp is hopeful the 27-year-old can be signed in time for Monday nights’ game against Manchester United.
“I honestly don’t know. The chairman deals with that,” Redknapp said when asked about the Adebayor deal.
“I’ve never spoken to the player or Manchester City or anybody there.
“He (Levy) will be dealing with that at boardroom level.
“It seems to have been progressing along and it seems like it probably will happen, but I’m not 100 per cent sure.”
The Spurs manager also confirmed that Luka Modric is likely to be involved in the game against the Red Devils after nearing recovery from a groin problem.
