Unwanted Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor will seek a £1m payoff in order to leave White Hart Lane, according to reports in the Metro.

The Togo international has already been told Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas that he is now surplus to requirements in north London this season, with the Portuguese having brought in a number of attacking players during the summer transfer window.

However, the 29-year-old was unable to find himself a new club during the close season, despite interest from a number of parties across the Continent, with the lanky striker having since been made to train with the reserves since the start of the new campaign.

And the reason that Adebayor has seemingly been unsuccessful in his efforts to leave the capital so far is that with his current contract at Spurs running until June 30 2015, the club are seeking a transfer fee for the Togolese, which most teams have so far refused to pay.

Championship outfit Queens Park Rangers were one of those possible sides thought to be keen to sign Adebayor, although head coach Harry Redknapp was only willing to take the forward on a season-long loan deal, which Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy was unwilling to consider.
