Tottenham Hotspur offering outcast Emmanuel Adebayor to MLS clubs

Emmanuel Adebayor

The striker is not wanted at White Hart Lane and could make a big splash in America.

This week has seen Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard agree a move to join LA Galaxy at the end of the season. The former England captain will leave Liverpool after a life-long association with the club and many a fan will probably shed a tear when he heads off to The States.

The same cannot be said about a Tottenham player now being offered around the MLS big-boys.

Tottenham Hotspur are desperate to get rid of Emmanuel Adebayor. The Togo striker has recently been nothing but trouble for the club and is no longer considered a member of the first-team squad.

His contract expires at the end of the season and Tottenham would like him gone six months earlier, so are said to be offering him around to MLS teams for a move this month.

The likes of Toronto FC and New York Red Bulls are looking for new big name designated players after the expected departure of Jermain Defoe and the retirement of Thierry Henry.

Tottenham hope that they will be tempted into taking Adebayor, possibly on loan, until his deal expires in the summer when they can bring him on a pre-arranged Bosman transfer.

Adebayor is however commanding a vast sum of money and it is not known of the teams Tottenham have contacted will in fact have the wealth available to them in order to complete a deal for Adebayor.
