Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor is ready to move to Tottenham.

Marca says Adebayor's priority was to return to Real Madrid and was willing to wait until transfer deadline day to get his move.

But Real coach Jose Mourinho has decided against re-signing Adebayor as he wants to leave a place in his squad open for the January signing of Santos star Neymar.

This news has been relayed to Adebayor, who now is ready to join Tottenham on-loan for the remainder of this season.
