Transfer news: Adebayor now eyeing Irons switch

AdebEmmanuel Adebayor is reportedly keen on a move to Upton Park after a drawn-out switch to Aston Villa appears to have finally hit the buffers.According to broadcaster ESPN, Villains boss, Tim Sherwood, had been leading the chase for the Spurs striker, but with the deal breaking down the Hammers have now been installed as favourites.

Sherwood confirmed the situation declaring: “If it can be revived, and we think it’s necessary, two parties have got to agree on it. At the moment there’s no agreement.”

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic could be tempted to bolster his striking options before the transfer window shuts but the club has several other targets.

  1. Get the feeling this is the player and his agent trying to make things happen. I hope we don’t have our heads turned by this. I think it would be good for Spurs and a bad move for us. it would be good to string Spurs along until deadline day and then pull the plug on the deal to stuff them with his ridiculous wages for another 5 months.

  2. Think this one is bs,a non-starter,hopefully anyway.Prefer this talk about Yilmaz doing the rounds.Now he would be worth getting in my opinion 😉

  3. His wages are to strong for a lazy player,at his best 5 years ago he was good but another with a big ego,Levy wanted him to stay we should show interest right up to the window and then pull out and let Levy pay him for another season,
    If we get Yilmaz we only need aback up forward with Lee going out on Loan if that’s true,

  4. It was no, no, no, from me yesterday…. and today it NOOOOOOOO.

  5. Why do we want this lazy *******………there’s far better out there on the market let the ***s keep him.

  6. Took the words out of my mouth Kev 😀

  7. The closer we get to the transfer window closing the more the bottom of the barrel is scraped. For too many reasons this is the wrong option – wages, age, loyalty, commitment. He is not a long term option and only seems to perform when seeking a contract. I have no doubt his tragic experience with Togo was awful but as a player to take West Ham forward? No.

  8. I will await adebayors video on Twitter when he says no hard feelings about the West Ham fans not wanting him.
