The Spurs boss doesn’t want the striker to rot in the reserves.
Andre Villas-Boas is ready to spare Tottenham misfit Emmanuel Adebayor a life in the reserves by sending him out on loan.
Spurs are looking to ship Adebayor out of White Hart Lane in when the transfer window reopens in January and the Mirror understands that Villas-Boas is keen for him to put himself in the shop window to potential suitors by dropping down to the Championship.
The 29-year-old reportedly asked chairman Daniel Levy to rip up his contract for a fee of £1 million at the weekend, but it seems the north London club would rather wait until the new year and sell the Arsenal and Manchester City striker.
Adebayor is set to train with the youth team this week after being frozen out of the first-team setup and is being targeted for QPR boss Harry Redknapp, who originally brought him to Tottenham on loan for the 2011/12 season before he signed permanently last summer.
However, the Championship leaders will have to subsidise part of his £160,000-a-week wages to make the move happen and Levy is unwilling to negotiate, with Wigan manager Owen Coyle also apparently interested in adding the Togo international to his attack.
