The rumours have finally come to an end as the club announces the signing of Emmanuel Adebayor on a season long loan from Manchester City.
The 27 year old Togo international was in the stands last night to watch his new team draw with Hearts to progress to the group stages of the Europa League and confirmation of the deal came shortly afterwards.
Adebayor improved considerably as a player after arriving in the premiership in 2006. Previously he averaged around one in four goals during his time in France before taking that up to one in two for Manchester City and for his previous English club, whoever they were.
It’s been a long time coming but Spurs have finally signed a striker (!) – albeit temporarily. Is this the news we’ve been waiting for and should we be looking to bring in another front man before the end of the month?
