Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor has vowed to fight for his future at the club despite falling out of favour under head coach Mauricio Pochettino.
The much-maligned forward has scored only two Premier League goals this season and has been limited to just 16 appearances in all competitions, receiving fierce criticism from the White Hart Lane faithful in the process.
The emergence of 29-goal hitman Harry Kane this term, as well as injury and personal problems, has contributed to the 31-year-old’s demise and he is widely-expected to be made available for transfer at the end of the campaign.
However, Adebayor has taken to Twitter to insist that he will battle for a place in the side despite the lack of opportunities that have come his way since Pochettino left Southampton to replace the sacked Tim Sherwood, who got the best out of the inconsistent hitman.

Adebayor said: “Contrary to reports, I am very happy at Tottenham and will do everything to fight for my place. I have a year to go on my contract and love playing in the EPL, the best league in the world!”
If Spurs do decide to let him go during the summer transfer window, they are likely to offer him at a cut-price value due to his contract situation. He joined the club on a permanent basis in 2012, following a season-long loan from Manchester City.
