Man City's Adebayor open to Tottenham move

Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor says he would be open to a move to Tottenham if the North London club wanted him. The Togo international, currently on loan at Real Madrid, is expected to return to England at the of the season but is unsure about his future at Man City.

Despite copping continual abuse from Spurs fans over the past few years when he was an Arsenal player and again this season in the Champions League, Adebayor has indicated he would swallow his pride to play for Tottenham so he can remain in the Premier League.

"I would go there and sign for them and listen to what they have to say to me," the 27-year old told the London Evening Standard. "I will definitely come back to the Premier League, I do not know when but I miss it.

"I felt sad because before joining Real Madrid my first choice was Tottenham," he added. "I was supposed to sign for Tottenham before Madrid came in. I heard this song and I did not take it seriously because I know part of me is from London and Tottenham is part of London.

"They were angry with me because I was taking their team out of the Champions League and I can understand that.

"I did not take it badly but it is bad because people have to realise that we are footballers, today we play for one team, tomorrow we may end up playing for another. What if I am wearing a Tottenham shirt tomorrow?"
