Turkish giants Besiktas have confirmed they will return in January with another bid for Spurs striker Emmanuel Adebayor, according to talkSPORT.

The club's vice president Ahmet Nur Cebi has stated that Besiktas are plotting another offer for the Tottenham forward after their failed effort over the summer.

They wanted to sign the Togo international, who has been pushed down the pecking order at White Hart Lane following the arrival of Roberto Soldado, but couldn't reach an agreement with Spurs over a fee.

But Nur Cebi says they are undeterred and plan another offer when the January window opens.

"We were interested in Adebayor in August," Cebi told

"The club will target Adebayor again in January but it's difficult to sign such marketable players."

Soldado, who scored the match-winning penalty against Hull City on Sunday, seems to be Andre Villas-Boas's first option to lead the Spurs attack.

Jermain Defoe is first off the bench, while Adebayor has not featured at all yet this season.

The 29-year-old is one of the highest earners at White Hart Lane, and could be expendable come the January transfer window.
