Rafael van der Vaart admits the Tottenham players are trying to convince Emmanuel Adebayor to stay.

The on-loan striker would have to take a drastic pay-cut on his Manchester City wages to make the move.

"I think the problem is the wages," Van der Vaart said.

"Yes, I have tried to persuade him to stay.

"Last season I had a good understanding with Peter Crouch, but with him it's even better. He's tall and strong. He's not selfish and his attitude is one of the best."
