Harry Redknapp has opened up a touch on the possibility of taking Emmanuel Adebayor back to north London.

Now that's something you might never have dreamed of reading a while back, but "it's a funny old game, Saint", as one prolific former Spur used to say quite a lot.

The Mirror's Darren Lewis has a couple of pieces on the subject this morning: "A loan deal to rescue Adebayor from his exile at Manchester City - and give Tottenham's front line a massive injection of quality - is understood to be virtually complete" says the first. He goes on at greater length in an opinion piece to add:

"...suddenly there is stardust on the chances of Spurs breaking back into the top four.

"Because if - sorry, when - Harry Redknapp signs Emmanuel Adebayor, Tottenham will once again have a front line to compete with the very best in the Premier League."

Another City striker said to be on the cusp of a move is Roque Santa Cruz, but to where? Elland Road has emerged as one possible destination for the affable Paraguayan, with the Mail reporting:

"Championship clubs have been alerted that Manchester City striker Roque Santa Cruz is willing to drop down a division to revive his career.

"His father Aproniano Cruz said: There are important teams like Leeds United, but his future will be decided by Manchester City.’"

Nedum Onuoha and Shaun Wright-Phillips feature in a catch-all article on the Mail's web site, with the former linked with Everton and Blackburn, and the latter said to be a target of Paris St Germain and QPR.

The prospect of Carlos Tevez leaving City has moved off the radar a touch of late, and Inter Milan's president Massimo Moratti is quoted on ESPN as saying, in terms of who would step in for Samuel Eto'o "Will Tevez be the replacement? I don't think we will get him."
