Despite releasing him from his contract three months ago, Tottenham Hostpur are still paying Emmanuel Adebayor £100,000-per-week, according to The Sun.

The striker's ludicrous wages means he is the cub's highest earner, incredible earning twice the amount of Harry Kane, even though he hasn't kicked a ball for the north Londoners since May.

Adebayor's contract was mutually terminated by the player and Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, who said: "I think it is clear he is not in my mind or in the plans for the future of Tottenham.

"It is not a problem for him or a problem for us. We are always available to help him, we have a good relationship.

"The only problem now is to find a solution for him and a solution for the club, something that is good for both sides."

However, given the Togolese is still being paid by his former employers, should any club be interested in signing the proven goalscorer they would have to first agree a fee with Tottenham.

And there has been considerable interest in the Togo international. After spending time in his homeland to regain fitness, reports suggest the striker is back in England and looking for possible destinations to ply his trade.

Watford have been linked with Adebayor, whilst rumours are circulating the former Arsenal forward could reunite with Jose Mourinho, who he played under at Real Madrid.

Adebayor was close to moving to West Ham over the summer before the club pulled out over fitness concerns, which then led to the possibility of moving to Aston Villa.

Adebayor, though, refused a move to the Villains, claiming he didn't receive a sign from God.
