Adebayor, 27, has struck nine goals in the league this season, but commands a salary of over £200,000 a week, a figure Spurs cannot match.
"He has done well for us. He has worked hard but he is on amazing money. The other week, one of the lads told him that he had not paid his £50 fine for being the worst player in training on a Friday morning," Redknapp told Sky Sports News.
"One of the lads said to him, 'Bloody hell, Ade, you are on 200 grand a week and you can't afford to pay a £50 fine!' He replied, 'Don't insult me, it's 225!' He certainly isn't going to get that here."
Spurs could move into second spot in the Premier League table with victory over Wolves on Saturday afternoon.
