Togolese star remains defiant.

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has reportedly told the club that he will not be forced out this summer, according to the Daily Mirror.

The 29-year-old has managed to find the net just six times in 28 appearances across all competitions this season after making his switch to White Heart Lane permanent last summer and the rumour is that his days are already numbered with the club linked to a host of new strikers.

However, the club may struggle to find a suitor for the Togolese international as he refuses to budge on his 100,000 per week wage demands.

It is a similar situation that marred his departure from Manchester City in 2011.

Spurs are hoping that a foreign moneybags club from overseas will be willing to take a chance on him with clubs in Russia, China, the United Arab Emirates and the MLS all targeted.

Andre Villas-Boas is thought to have lost patience with the player as he was left out of the squad for the club’s 2-2 draw with Wigan this weekend and after personally fighting to secure a long term deal for Jermain Defoe last year, he has refused to show the same kind of spirit for Adebayor.

Spurs have been linked to a number of high profile strikers such as Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke, QPR’s Loic Remy, Sevilla’s Alvaro Negredo and Leandro Damiao of Internacional.
