Tottenham are struggling to get Emmanuel Adebayor off their books.

The People says Spurs thought they had a £6million deal with Besiktas - but high-earning Adebayor is refusing to go, despite the Turks matching his £100,000-a-week wages.

Tottenham want to put funds raised by Adebayor's sale towards their bid for Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke.
