Adebayor completes Tottenham switch

Tottenham have finally completed the permanent signing of
Emmanuel Adebayor from Manchester City. spurs had been trying
to tie up a deal for Adebayor all
summer, with the striker having
enjoyed a successful loan spell at
White Hart Lane last season.
It had been feared the move
might break down over money
but both clubs confirmed on
Tuesday afternoon an agreement
had been reached, while
Adebayor tweeted, “I’m back!!!!
Tottenham here I come!! I’m
hungry for goals…Get ready.”
Sources close to Tottenham have
insisted the club have not broken
their wage structure to sign the
28-year-old, who was reportedly
on £175,000 a week at City and
reluctant to take a big pay cut.
It would seem the hold up was
more the result of a dispute
between the player and the
Barclays Premier League
champions over a loyalty bonus
Adebayor spent three years at
City but fell out of favour upon
Robert Mancini’s appointment as
manager and spent the last year
and a half on loan at Real Madrid
and Spurs.
Despite having become a hate
figure among Tottenham fans
because of his days at Arsenal,
Adebayor quickly won them over
with a string of outstanding
displays and finished last season
as their top scorer with 18 goals
in 37 appearances.
