It’s been a long round of negotiations, but Emmanuel Adebayor is finally heading to Tottenham Hotspur on a permanent deal.
“I am pleased to be signing for Spurs on a permanent basis after finally agreeing my departure with Manchester City,” said Adebayor. “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.”
This will perhaps trigger a domino of signings in the Premier League. Now that Tottenham has signed Adebayor, don’t be surprised if you see City make a signing before the weekend.
The big question for Tottenham Hotspur supporters is whether Adebayor can continue to perform at the highest level with Spurs. Is he a better loan player than a permanent signing (i.e. based on his successful loan outings with Spurs and Real Madrid)? Give us your opinion in the comments section below.
