Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says that he will not risk Emmanuel Adebayor for Sunday's match against Newcastle United.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has said that he will not take an unnecessary risk on Emmanuel Adebayor's fitness against Newcastle United on Sunday.

The on-loan Manchester City striker picked up a hamstring strain in Spurs' victory over Arsenal on Sunday, October 2.

The 27-year-old has been rated as 50/50 for the match at St James's Park, but Redknapp doesn't want to make a potential injury any worse.

"It's a dangerous one," said Redknapp. "If he tears it badly, he has got a grade one tear if he makes a real mess of it and he could be out for six or seven weeks.

"If he is a doubt, I wouldn't want to risk him. I wouldn't want to lose him long term."

Tottenham are currently sixth in the Premier League table, while Newcastle occupy fourth place.
