Adebayor makes move to Spurs from City permanent
Emmanuel Adebayor made his move to Tottenham from Manchester
City permanent on Tuesday.
The Togo striker spent most of last season on loan at White Hart
Lane, scoring 17 goals in the Premier League, after falling out of
favor at City.
Tottenham spent the offseason negotiating a permanent deal with
City to secure the 28-year-old Adebayor but the switch was only
finalized on Tuesday after he missed the first match of the season.
Andre Villas-Boas’ side lost 2-1 at Newcastle on Saturday
”I am pleased to be signing for Spurs on a permanent basis
after finally agreeing my departure with Manchester City,”
Adebayor said. ”It may have taken longer than expected but I am
delighted to be back at Tottenham Hotspur.
”I really enjoyed my time here last season and I am hoping we
can achieve great things together again.”
Tottenham is also offloading players, with Sebastien Bassong
sold to Norwich on Tuesday, and another defender, Michael Dawson,
poised to join Queens Park Rangers.
