Tottenham will be offered a cut-price January deal to turn Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor's loan into a permanent move according to The Sun.

The 27-year-old Togolese star has is currently on a season-long loan in north London, but has hinted he would love to make the switch permanent.

However, Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has reservations over Adebayor's financial demands - as at present Tottenham are believed to be paying only half of his £170,000-a-week wages he is currently on at City.

If he wishes to sign at White Hart Lane, then Adebayor will be forced to take a significant pay-cut, but the Citizens will also tempt Tottenham to do a deal by reducing the £14million option they already have to sign him at the end of the campaign.

Adebayor is also commanding interest from Italy and France, with Juventus and PSG reportedly monitoring the situation - and may consider a move away from the Barclays Premier League in order to retain current wage-packet.

Citizens boss Roberto Mancini is keen to get the African ace off the club's wage bill in order to make further signings of his own, and is hopeful that by letting Adebayor leave for less than the figure they could command at the end of the season will tempt Tottenham into a January agreement.
