Adebayor makes Tottenham switch permanent

21 August 2012 19:30

Emmanuel Adebayor has completed a five-million pound transfer from Premier League champions Manchester City to Tottenham.

North London club Tottenham have been seeking to bring last season's loan signing to White Hart Lane on a permanent deal since July.

But Adebayor's high wage demands along with a dispute with City over a transfer fee put the deal in jeopardy.

However, Tottenham announced on Tuesday that the club had signed the 2008 African Player of the Year on a permanent deal.

A Spurs statement read: "We are delighted to announce that we have completed the transfer of Emmanuel Adebayor from Manchester City."

The 28 year-old Togolese striker also expressed his satisfaction at sealing a permanent move.

"I am pleased to be signing for Spurs on a permanent basis after finally agreeing my departure with Manchester City," he told the club's official website.

"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."

Adebayor scored 18 goals in 37 appearances during an impressive loan spell for Spurs last season.
