Madrid match-winner wants England return

Published Add your comment

On loan Real Madrid forward Emmanuel Adebayor says he would like to return to the Barclays Premier League, according to Metro.

The Togolese international is currently on loan from Manchester City to Madrid and scored twice for the Spanish giants in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Tottenham Hotspur.

But despite his success, which included him notching Madrid's 5000th home goal, the striker could be ready to move back to England, with Newcastle United linked with his signature.

"I have been playing in England for five years, I had the chance to play in France for a couple of years, so it is a good time for me to play in Spain," he said.

"If I have the chance to go back to England one day, why not? I will never throw England away. I love the football, I love the atmosphere.


"But don't get me wrong, I am very happy where I am, the future will show where I go but for now I am just happy to be on the football pitch again, playing football.

"That is all that matters now. We will talk in the summer about what I am going to do about my career.'

Alan Pardew is desperate to replace Andy Carroll, who was sold in the January transfer window for £35 million, and Newcastle supporters are expected a marque signing to kick-start their second season in the Premier League since their promotion from the Npower Championship.

Newcastle have been linked in the past with Johan Elmander, Mladen Petric and Edinson Cavani, but with Adebayor possessing a proven pedigree of scoring goal in the division, the Magpies will be keen to rap up the signing.
