After being released by Spurs on Sunday morning, it appears that there's another English club who'd be willing to give the Togo international a chance. Tim Sherwood, the manager for Aston Villa, said that he thinks Abdebayor would play for them for free (obviously a joke) and that he'd fit right in, according to The Evening Standard. Considering that their current top scorer is a midfielder (Scott Sinclair with two goals), this potential move makes a ton of sense, as Adebayor can come in and push Gabby Agbonlahor and Rudy Gestede for valuable minutes... if his head is screwed on right.
Charlie Austin may be on his was back to the first divison. Newcastle, who refused to pay £15 for the striker this summer, are apparently lining up an offer of £6 million for Austin, according to The Telegraph. Charlie Austin was terrific for QPR last season in the top flight, slotting home 18 goals for the now-relegated side and already has five goals from them in the English League Championship. It's likely QPR will need to accept the offer, as Austin's contract is up in June and he can leave on a Bosman if he chooses. With the problems Newcastle has at striker, this seems like an intelligent move for them.
