Spurs skipper backs Adebayor addition

Published Add your comment

White Hart Lane is sure to be a hub of transfer activity today, but Tottenham have already pulled off one notable coup by signing Emmanuel Adebayor.

The former Arsenal hitman returns to north London on a season-long loan from Manchester City, and will provide Harry Redknapp with another goalscoring threat.

Goals are certainly what Spurs need right now, with Redknapp's side having scored just once in the league so far, compared to conceding eight in two games.

And Spurs skipper Michael Dawson is delighted to see a player of Adebayour's quality added to their forward ranks.

"Emmanuel Adebayor has joined us on a season-long loan from City," said the defender.

"He's a great addition to the squad. I've played against him on many occasions and he's scored a few goals against us.


"He's a big, strong guy, he can hold the ball up, head it and has great technique.

"It's a chance for him to come and play football and I'm sure he'll be determined to show everyone what he can do."

Meanwhile, Dawson has promised Spurs fans that he and his colleagues will arrest the recent slide in the league after they return from international duty.

He added: "We'll move on, we have to. "The unfortunate thing is that it's now an international break and we don't play again until September 10.

"But we'll pick ourselves up and we'll be ready for Wolves."
