Tottenham Plan To Sell Emmanuel Adebayor To Help Fund Move For Unsettled Man United Striker

North Londoners have now finally lost patience with the Togolese. 

Check in to Aston Villa vs Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur are planning on making a move for unused Manchester United front man Javier Hernandez in the January transfer window, and the north London club hope to be able to offload unwanted striker Emmanuel Adebayor in order to fund the purchase of the Mexican, according to reports in the Independent.

Tottenham head coach Andre Villas now considers the Togo international to be his only third-choice forward at White Hart Lane, behind both recent new club-record signing Roberto Soldado and England international Jermaine Defoe in the current pecking order of attackers at the club.

Adebayor originally joined Spurs in August 2011 on a season-long loan from Premier League rivals Manchester City, and in his debut campaign in the capital the 29-year-old impressed by registering 18 goals and 12 assists in total in his 37 matches in all competitions for the club, including an equally eye-catching 17 strikes and 11 assists in his 33 Premier League contests.

However, having then made his loan switch permanent last August in a deal that cost Tottenham just £5 million, Adebayor flattered to deceive last time out, recording only eight goals and two assists in his 32 outings all campaign long.

And now Villas-Boas is understood to be keen to sell the Togolese to Turkish giants Besiktas at the turn of the year in order to help fund his own move for prolific United marksman Hernandez.
