Tottenham Hotspurs have agreed with Manchester City for a suitable transfer price for lanky striker Togolese International Emmanuel Seyi Adebayor. Adebayor thus becomes Spurs third signing of the summer with the acquisitions of Jan Vertonghen and Gylfi Sigurdsson couple of weeks ago.

Adebayor spent last season with the Spurs on a loan deal from City and helped the side to an impressive push at the earlier part of the season. The 28th year old scored 18 goals in 37 appearances and relegated Jermain Defoe and Loius Saha to the bench with his eye catching performances.

Aside his 18 goals, Adebayor was also provider with 12 assists for the North London side. The former Arsenal hit man was brought to England by Arsenal French manager Arsene Wenger in 2006 from Monaco but was sold to Manchester City in July 2009 for £25million after it appeared his relationship with the Arsenal fans had broken down.

Adebayor scored 15 goals in 34 appearances but with the sacking of Mark Hughes at City and the entry of Roberto Mancini, he lost his starting berth in the Eastland club and in need of first team action, he was shipped to Real Madrid on loan in January 2011.

Whilst the La Liga side failed to make his move permanent, Adebayor returned to England and admirer Harry Redknapp brought him on loan to White Hart Lane. Talks of a permanent deal were deliberated and new manager Andre Villas Boas chose to make it happen.

He helped Spurs finish fourth in the Premier League last season and this week new Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas said: “We are extremely willing to have Adebayor on board with us.” The transfer fee is believed to be in the region of £5million with City desperate to cut down the wages expenses.

With Adebayor off to Spurs, it is believed that Manchester City will now make a move for Arsenal striker and Premier League top marksman; Robin Van Persie who has announced to the Arsenal faithful that he will not be renewing his contract already in its last year.
