Adebayor set for Spurs switch
Emmanuel Adebayor is a step closer to leaving Manchester City after Tottenham had a bid accepted for the Togo striker.
Reports are emerging claiming the 28-year-old will return to capital in a £6m deal over the weekend, following a highly successful loan spell at White Hart Lane last term.
New Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is happy to push through a deal for the former Arsenal hitman, even though he wasn't in charge when he scored 17 goals during his season long stay.
It's thought the Londoners are prepared to make Adebayor their highest-paid player to make his stay permanent, although he will be taking a cut on his £160,000 a week salary at City.
Assuming there are no last minute hiccups with personal terms, his switch to Spurs is set to be confirmed in the coming days.
Adebayor was signed by the reigning Premier League champions by Mark Hughes, but he found himself out of favour once Roberto Mancini took over at the Etihad Stadium and was loaned out to Real Madrid and Spurs.
The striker netted 15 times for City in 34 appearances following his £25m move from the Gunners back in 2009.
