Tottenham have agreed a deal with Manchester City to make Emmanuel Adebayor’s loan move to White Hart Lane permanent, according to Sky Sports.

The Togolese striker spent last season on loan at Spurs and bagged 17 goals to become the clubs top scorer last term.

While Spurs have always appeared keen on making the move permanent, Adebayor’s large wage packet appeared to be a major obstacle, with City paying around £100,000-per-week of his £170,000 wages in order to facilitate his loan move to north London last time round.

However Spurs are believed to have come to an agreement whereby the 28-year-old will take home around £100,000-per-week, a sum that will be significantly bolstered by add-ons.

City are believed to have accepted a fee of around £6 million for the striker having paid around £24 million to secure his services from Arsenal in 2009.

Previously, Adebayor accredited his good form last season to the influence of former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp, who was recently replaced by Andre Villas-Boas.

The Portuguese insisted earlier this week that he was still keen on landing the former Arsenal man.

"It would be a lie if I tell you we are not looking for a striker," Villas-Boas told reporters. "And of course Ade is part of that list. We are extremely willing to have Adebayor on board with us."
