0 LIKES UnLike is looking forward to the new Premier League season and is delighted to have sealed a permanent move to Tottenham Hotspur.
The Togolese forward spent last season on loan with the North London side from former club Manchester City, scoring 17 goals in 33 league appearances. Adebayor had a very impressive season in a white jersey and quickly became a fan favourite, going from
zero to hero in a matter of days.
The player had previously been an player and had scored a handful of goals against Spurs, but his loan move, which came as a surprise to many, turned him into a local favourite as he quickly established himself in the Spurs set up.
The striker developed a very good understanding with Rafael Van Der Vaart and both players combined wonderfully to score and create goals.
Manager Andre Villas-Boas was well aware of this and wanted to sign the Togolese permanently as quickly as possible. The only problem in the deal was Adebayor’s reluctance to take a pay cut in his wages in making the move to North London.
The 28-year old however finally completed his move this week and was signed for a fee of £5 million. Adebayor was an integral part of Harry Redknapp’s squad and is now looking forward to playing for Villas-Boas.
The player is expecting another ‘intense’ season in the Premier League, and hopes that he can guide the club to a top four finish and build up on last season’s 17 goal tally.
“Last year was quite intense," Adebayor told Spurs' official website. “And this season every game will be difficult as you saw at Newcastle on Saturday. They have a good team.”

“Manchester United, Manchester City,, Arsenal, Tottenham and Newcastle will all be fighting for the top four spots. It's not going to be easy but as a footballer you just have to keep doing your thing and see what happens at the end of the season.”
Speaking about his permanent move to White Hart Lane, he added:
“I am pleased to be signing for Spurs on a permanent basis after finally agreeing my departure with Manchester City.”
