Adebayor wants £1m Spurs payoff after being banished to reserves

by Kevin Coleman

The Metro is reporting that former Arsenal and Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor wants a £1million payoff to leave Tottenham Hotspur.

The Togolese striker is still in the Spurs squad but is very much out of favour with the arrivals of Roberto Soldado and Erik Lamela. It was expected to see him leave White Hart Lane this summer but a move away didn’t materalize.

Now, with no first team football on the horizon and a weakened relationship with manager Andre Villas Boas, Adebayor has been training with the youth side.

The 29-year-old wants Spurs to cancel his contract so he can go about securing a lucrative deal in the middle-east. He had an excellent start to his Tottenham career when he joined on loan from Manchester City, but his production has gone  downhill since making the move permanent.

    It would be cheap at the price. But then the dark side of me says “Let him rot.”

    Get rid before he infects the squad

    Spurs, you do not want this man around your young players. Negotiate a fee, whatever it is and rid yourself of this mercenary, ASAP.
