Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has revealed that new signings Emmanuel Adebayor and Scott Parker will make their debuts for the club during Spurs' trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Adebayor has signed on loan until the end of the season from rivals Manchester City, while Parker complete his move from West Ham United, on the deadline day of the transfer window.

And Redknapp has confirmed that the duo are ready to take their place in the first-team.

"Scott is ready to play and Emmanuel is short of games, but he's a naturally fit guy and again, ready to play," reported Harry at the training ground on Friday morning.

"They've both trained with us now and it's given us a big lift to have them here."

Redknapp had further good news on a couple of the club's early season injury victims ahead of the club's visit to Molineux, and the resumption of their Europa League campaign.


Long-term injury victim Ledley King could return to bolster a defence that conceded five last time out against Manchester City, while Rafael van der Vaart's recovery from a hamstring injury could see him return in the near future.

"Ledley has an outside chance of playing at Wolves," Redknapp revealed. "And Rafa's coming on well.

"Sandro (knee) isn't fit and Steven Pienaar (groin) isn't available. "William Gallas (calf) will also be another couple of weeks.

"But Niko Kranjcar played in the week for Croatia and came through okay, so that was good, and the other internationals all came back okay."
