Togolese striker won’t be forced out of White Hart Lane.
Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has reportedly rejected a move to Besiktas as he is keen to fight for his future at White Hart Lane, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 29-year-old does not appear to be part of Andre Villas-Boas’ plans this season, as the Portuguese coach has looked to improve his attacking options with the signings of Roberto Soldado, and possibly Willian and Erik Lamela still to come.
Adebayor had a poor season for Spurs last year, scoring just five Premier League goals after making a permanent move from Manchester City, and now feels he is being forced out of the club.
The former Arsenal man still has three years remaining on his contract, earning around £170,000 a week, and he is not keen to leave and take a pay-cut elsewhere.
Jermain Defoe’s future has also come under some speculation after he had a disappointing season in front of goal as well, though Villas-Boas has appeared more determined to hang on to the England international, who had been linked with Stoke City and Queens Park Rangers.
Meanwhile, star player Gareth Bale finally looks set to complete his exit from the club with a record-breaking £94million move to Real Madrid.
