Tottenham are continuing talks with Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor over a permanent deal.

The Telegraph says talks are also progressing over the permanent transfer of Emmanuel Adebayor to Tottenham. Adebayor's current contract at City is worth £170,000 a week, but it is understood that Tottenham are ready to make a £4 million upfront payment to the player if he agrees a deal to remain at White Hart Lane until 2016.

This would help mitigate his wage cut, although Tottenham would then still also make Adebayor the highest paid player in their history on a deal worth around £110,000 a week.
