Adebayor returns to Spurs with promise of goals


Emmanuel Adebayor has finally clinched his return to Tottenham Hotspur.

The former Arsenal striker enjoyed an impressive season on loan at White Hart Lane last term, helping them to a fourth-place finish in the Premier League. Adebayor had little future at Manchester City, and was always likely to leave this summer.

However, talks over a return to North London had stalled, reportedly due to his personal terms, but this has now been resolved. Adebayor has penned a four-year deal with the Londoners, who have agreed an undisclosed fee for his signature.

The striker confirmed the transfer on his Twitter page, posting this afternoon: "I'm back!!!! Tottenham here I come!! I'm hungry for goals...Get ready."

Adebayor scored 18 goals for Spurs last season, and is now set to play a big role in Andre Villas-Boas plans this term. The Portuguese tasted defeat in his first game in charge of the club on Saturday, when they went down 2-1 at Newcastle United.

West Bromwich Albion visit White Hart Lane this weekend, when the Togolese forward is set to make his second debut.
