Sherwood open to Adebayor reunion

Brazil ladies ‘in harmony and ready’ for World Cup challenge

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood says he would 'not hesitate' to sign Emmanuel Adebayor should the Togolese striker make himself open to a move.

Adebayor was released by Spurs at the weekend, bringing an end to his four-year spell at White Hart Lane.

This after the Togolese frontman was linked with a loan move to Villa Park in the off-season, with reports suggesting the club had balked at his wage demands.

Sherwood, however, insists he remains open to a move for the former Arsenal man but expressed his disappointment at missing out on the 31-year-old, who is unable to join a new club until January after being registered as part of Spurs' league squad.

"I would not hesitate. If he had the desire to want to come and play football again, I would have taken him in a heartbeat," Sherwood is quoted as saying by Goal.

"We still have to respect his decision, whatever he makes. It's his – I can't influence it.

"Am I disappointed? I'm disappointed for him because he's not going to play. He's too good a talent – I've seen that first hand – to not play any football, but unfortunately I don't think there's any window open for him now."
