Van der Vaart makes Adebayor appeal

Published Add your comment

Rafael van der Vaart has urged Tottenham to sign Emmanuel Adebayor on a permanent basis.

Adebayor, who is on a season-long loan from Manchester City, scored twice on Sunday to inspire Tottenham to a battling 3-1 win over Swansea. The forward arrived at White Hart Lane with concerns about his temperament, attitude and ability, but he has defied his critics to score 14 goals.

The striker is reported to earn around £170,000 a week at the Etihad Stadium, a figure way beyond what the maximum earners take home at Tottenham, but Van der Vaart said: "He is one of the best, a top striker. He played for Real Madrid, for Arsenal, Manchester City. I was surprised that he came and I hope that he stays."
