Tottenham count on Man City assistance in Adebayor deal

Tottenham are hoping for Manchester City assistance in their bid for striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Sunday Mirror says Tottenham cannot afford to pay ­Adebayor's wages, so they are trying to agree a deal that would see them sign the Togo striker on a free, pay a percentage of the final two years of his City contract in a lump sum and then put him in line with the club's other top earners.

City are still holding out for at least a minimal fee for Adebayor, but realise by getting him off the books they can save around £16m in wages.
