The Togo international was released by the North London club earlier on today following a mutual decision to terminate his contract after failing to make a Premier League start since November 2014.
Emmanuel Adebayor was left out of Mauricio Pochettino’s Premier League and Europa League squad after failing to find a new club during the summer transfer window.
The release comes as no surprise to Spurs fans as manager, Pochettino said the striker was not “in the plans for the future of Spurs”.
Adebayor, arrived at White Hart Lane from Manchester City for £5m in 2012 after a successful loan spell. The striker had a year left on his contract and was believed to want a £5m pay-off to end it early.
A number of clubs are interested in the 31 year-old’s signature, with former manager, Tim Sherwood being keen to sign the former Real Madrid forward at Aston Villa.
First team opportunities were limited with the signing of Son Heung-min and Clinton N’Jie. Adebayor scored 35 times for Spurs over a four year period.
