Man City striker Adebayor unhappy with Tottenham contract offer

Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor wants Tottenham to up their personal terms.

Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor wants Tottenham to up their personal terms.

The London Evening Standard says Adebayor’s advisors believe the 28-year-old deserves better terms than those offered.

It is thought Adebayor, who had a successful loan spell at White Hart Lane last season, has a four-year deal on the table, and discussions between the sides are ongoing. Adebayor has two years remaining on his £175,000-a-week deal at City, a basic salary that is far in excess of what Spurs’ highest earners collect.

Spurs hoped to bridge the gap by including a signing-on fee and clauses relating to bonuses and image rights but the player is still holding out for a more lucrative deal. Adebayor’s camp believe he would be about £1m worse off if he returns to north London.
