Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp admits Togo striker Emmanuel Adebayor's long-term future at White Hart Lane is still uncertain.

Adebayor has scored 14 goals since arriving on loan from Manchester City at the start of the season and Redknapp credits the 28-year-old as a key figure in his side's impressive form this term.

It is believed Adebayor is keen to stay at Tottenham on a permanent basis, but Redknapp knows the former Arsenal star's weekly wage could prove a big stumbling block in negotiations.

He has been excellent, but whether it's possible to do a deal, I wouldn't be sure.

"He scored two goals last week against Swansea and he has been excellent, but whether it's possible to do a deal, I wouldn't be sure," Redknapp said.

"Manu is on loan at the moment and that's where we're at. The chairman will deal with [any negotiations] at the end of this season. I wouldn't have a clue whether [a permanent transfer] is a possibility or not."

"His future doesn't seem to be there [at City]," Redknapp added. "He probably needs to move on. City have just gone through a dicky little spell recently but they have lots of good strikers there. If you look at the quality they have up front, they are full of top players."
