Adebayor intends to stay at Tottenham
Emmanuel Adebayor is intent on staying at Tottenham Hotspur beyond this summer, and does not want to be forced out the club despite falling out of favour with manager Andre Villas-Boas, the Daily Mirror is reporting.
The Togolese forward’s relationship with Villas-Boas has deteriorated since last season, where he scored just five Premier League goals, and has led to Adebayor not appearing to be in the first-team plans for the new campaign. He will also be forced to train alone after Thursday’s Europa League clash against Dinamo Tbilisi in Georgia.
The 29-year-old also fell out with Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini while he was at the club, which resulted in very few appearances at the Etihad Stadium, before loan moves to Real Madrid, and Tottenham, until that move was made permanent last summer.
Villas-Boas is thought to be looking to sign another striker to bolster his attacking options, despite already having made Roberto Soldado the club’s record buy, in a £26m deal from Valencia. Any deal would reduce Adebayor’s first-team opportunities.
Adebayor has been the subject of interest from Turkish side Besiktas this summer, but turned them down, in favour at staying at White Hart Lane, where he still has three years remaining on his £170,000 per week contract.
