Redknapp tight-lipped on Adebayor

Harry Redknapp says that he "genuinely has no idea" how far advanced talks are between Tottenham and Manchester City over a deal for Emmanuel Adebayor, after media reports that a move was close to being agreed for the Togolese striker.

The Spurs boss does admit that he needs to strengthen his squad before the transfer window closes at the end of August, and once again reiterates his belief that Luka Modric will stay at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham take on Hearts at Tynecastle in a Europa League first-leg qualifier on Thursday.
