Manchester City are refusing to give Emmanuel Adebayor a pay off to leave the club.

The Daily Mail says Adebayor is currently in negotiations over a move to Tottenham after the two clubs agreed a £5m move.

But the striker is still in talks with Spurs after his refusal to accept a cut to his current £175,000-a-week wages, which were part subsidised by City last season.

Adebayor is willing to accept Spurs' £100,000-a-week offer, but only if City make up the loss by handing a chunk of the transfer fee directly to him.

But City are not keen on that idea and boss Roberto Mancini has told Adebayor he can forget about picking up a hefty pay off, and the club will force him to play in the reserves if he fails to find an agreement with Spurs
