A work permit for Emmanuel Adebayor appears to be the only thing standing between Manchester City and yet another jaw-dropping £25million signing.

Even before Carlos Tevez put the finishing touches to a five-year deal, rumours were circulating that Adebayor was undergoing a medical after a fee had been agreed with Arsenal.

Then it emerged he will attempt to secure a work permit – which should be nothing more than a formality – before heading off to South Africa, via Abu Dhabi for a brief meeting with the Blues owners.

City officials remained silent on the prospect of the transfer being speeded through, although Hughes, given his general reluctance to discuss possible new recruits, rather gave the game away by first confirming talks had taken place, then suggesting they were at quite an advanced stage.

“There has been discussions between ourselves and Arsenal,” he said. “It is not the right time or place to discuss it but yes, there has been contact and possibly there is a deal to be done.

“It has not been concluded as we speak. Until it happens, it is not the time or the place to talk about it.”
