Tottenham have gone cold on Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Sunday Mirror says having taken Adebayor on loan last season, Spurs agreed a £4m deal to sign him permanently.

City had agreed to subsidise part of Adebayor's £175,000-a-week wages, meaning he would not lose any money by making the switch to White Hart Lane on a four-year contract.

But Adebayor stunned both Spurs and City by rejecting the deal unless he also receives the £4m fee and effectively moves on a free transfer.

He also only wants a two-year contract at White Hart Lane, so he can try to make even more money by moving on again in 2014.
