QPR boss rules out Adebayor move

QPR boss Harry Redknapp has given up on bringing Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor to Loftus Road.

The former Spurs boss revealed last week that he was planning on launching a loan move for the Togo international, however he has now conceded defeat in the race for his signature.

"We're looking for at least one front man but we haven't really got a lot of choice," Redknapp told talkSPORT.

"It's got to be someone who is out of work or someone who is willing to be let go. It's going to be very difficult to get someone in at this stage."

"We would have him here all day long. He would be fantastic but we're not going to get him.

"It's not his wages, I just don't think he would drop down to the Championship - that's the problem."

Adebayor has fallen out of favour at White Hart Lane due to Andre Villas-Boas bringing in the likes of Erik Lamela and Roberto Soldado over the summer.

The 29-year-old is yet to play for Tottenham this season and was forced to train with the reserves after his prolonged absence from the first team due to the death of his brother.

Redknapp is said to be desperate to add a striker to his ranks as Bobby Zamora has been ruled out with a knee injury and Andy Johnson is struggling with a knee injury - leaving summer recruit Charlie Austin as the only recognised striker at the QPR manager's disposal.
