Togolese striker willing to see out his White Hart Lane contract.
Tottenham Hotspur are doing their best to offload out-of-favour striker Emmanuel Adebayor during the January transfer window, report the Mirror, but the Togolese centre forward is refusing to be forced out of White Hart Lane and is willing to see out of his £100,000 per week contract over the next 18 months if an acceptable offer is not forthcoming.
The report suggests that clubs in Turkey and Italy have shown an interest in taking Adebayor off Spurs’ hands, but the former Arsenal man has shown no interest in any of the offers presented to him so far, despite being frozen out of the first team picture by manager Mauricio Pochettino having started the campaign as first choice.
Adebayor has become less and less influential at Tottenham since his loan move to the club from Manchester City was made permanent – and he has already been frozen out once under former manager Andre Villas-Boas, before a hot run of form under Tim Sherwood.
With Harry Kane now banging in the goals and Roberto Soldado also ahead of Adebayor in the pecking order, as well as any potential new signings, his time at the club appears to well and truly be coming to an end.
