The return of Emmanuel Adebayor to Spurs has given Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas another option up front but if you believe the press, that option is set to last for just a few weeks. Rumours that the Togolese striker will be offloaded in January have intensified during the international break while Spurs have now become clear favourites to sign Manchester United’s Mexican striker Javier Hernandez when the window reopens.

Among the fresh batch of gossip relating to Ade’s future was talk of a loan deal to West Ham and although the club may prefer a permanent transfer, this is a path well-trodden by former employers Manchester City. As a prelude to that permanent move, it may not be the most outrageous claim but how much of Adebayor’s wages will the Hammers be looking to cover?

As for Hernandez, the 25 year old faces a bit part role at Old Trafford but the Mexican has spoken of his desire to fight for a place.

“I am working towards that – earning a spot as a starter,” he said. “I know that my performance on the pitch will allow me to achieve that goal someday either here or elsewhere for any other club.”

The rest of the interview with Mexican TV is heavily focussed on United. With 33 goals in 79 league games, many as a substitute, this is a promising prospect but will it really happen?

  1. Not a chance in hell would we get javier from manchester united, the kid would cost in the region of 60-70m and their would never sell a player of his abilities.
    Dont believe the arrogant media media, they just doing what they do best, blow a story way over the top and make more of it then there is.
    we couldnt afford the kid

  2. Hernandez would never come to Spurs and Adebarndoor would never leave unless his wages are met. And who would even consider paying that fool £100k+ a week? Only us & Man city 🙁
