Tottenham are convinced Emmanuel Adebayor will be their player by the time Monday morning training kicks off.

The Daily Mail says City and Spurs are close to agreeing a £5million fee for the Togo striker, who spent last season on loan at White Hart Lane.

And Andre Villas-Boas is confident of completing a deal for Adebayor in time for the centre-forward to have his first pre-season session on Monday.

Adebayor will become the best paid player in the club's history - earning in the region of £115,000-per-week, inclusive of bonuses and add-ons.
