Numerous media outlets are now starting to say that the reason for the delay in the loan was down to a scheduled meeting between Tim Sherwood and Ade.
What is not said is whether the heart to heart was instigated by Ade or Tottenhams ex gaffer. This could be down to several reasons, however the likelihood is that Adebayor wants assurances on the loan deal with Villa already signing striker reinforcements earlier in the window.
Tottenham fans I am sure will be rubbing their hands together on the prospect of the club clearing Ade off of the wage bill.
It is a move that has been expected for most of the window and now Villa are keen to push the deal through for their opening game at Bournemouth.
