Emmanuel Adebayor: Completes protracted Spurs move

Emmanuel Adebayor: Completes protracted Spurs move

Emmanuel Adebayor declared he is "hungry for goals" after finally completing his permanent transfer to Tottenham.

Manchester City and Adebayor came to an agreement on the terms of a pay-off this afternoon, allowing the Togo striker to complete his permanent move to White Hart Lane for a reported fee of £5million.

The 28-year-old's arrival is a huge boost to Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas, who until today had only one recognised out and out striker in Jermain Defoe.

Despite spending three and a half years at bitter rivals Arsenal, Adebayor became a fans' favourite at Tottenham last season, mainly because he scored 18 goals and struck up a sound understanding with Rafael van der Vaart while on loan at the London club.

The Togo hitman vowed to continue his goal-scoring spree at the club today after sealing his return to Spurs.

"I'm back!!!! Tottenham here I come!! I'm hungry for goals...Get ready," Adebayor tweeted.

"I am pleased to be signing for Spurs on a permanent basis after finally agreeing my departure with Manchester City," he added later on Spurs' 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 spent three years at City but fell out of favour upon Robert Mancini's appointment as manager and spent the last year and a half on loan at Real Madrid and Spurs.
