Ade permanent deal closer to completion?

"Loved my spell at Tottenham. We are working hard with the chairman to make it permanent. Will keep you informed!" was the message from Adebayor's twitter page published this morning.

So it looks like there really is a chance that Ade could be returning to the Lane next year potentially on a permanent deal, with talks taking place which is a positive sign of the clubs intent for the summer at least.

Some will still believe that the deal is unlikely due to the high wages he currently earns but the quote definitely shows a desire to play for the club. He has recently been bombarding us with his positive thoughts of his time with Spurs and he will be desperate to get out of City where he simply will not get the games that a player of his ilk should be getting.

With our wage cap around the £85,000 mark he must be aware that he will not be getting anywhere near his reported £170,000 but his love for London and for the club may just swing negotiations in our favour.

It is a sign of the progress made by the club that we can attract players willing to take a cut in wages to join us and this loyalty to our club will be gratefully received by the fans. Love him or hate him, he's efficient and his goalscoring and assist statistics speak for themselves. From those strikers realistically available to us, Ade is one of the better ones.

Could this be the start of a busy summer of transfers or yet another damp squib to get our hopes up once again and ultimately sample them back down into the ground?

  1. Reported in the news that Vertonghen is "only looking at Spurs" which is good news. The transfer fee is only the stumbling block.

    Adebayor will be a big gamble to sign on a permanent deal. No doubt even if he takes a pay cut he will be one of, if not the most highest paid player in the Spurs side.

    The gamble is that his performances while under a contract. His last 2 deals have been loans, RMadrid and recently Spurs, where he is just keen to impress to earn a permanent deal (And to get out of MCity).

    Didn't get what he would have loved with RMadrid, but now it's working out with Spurs.
    Would he remain the Adebayor Spurs signed on loan 9 months ago, or return to the Adebayor Arsenal wanted out years ago.
