Report: Emmanuel Adebayor locked in talks over Tottenham exit, Middle East move possible

Emmanuel Adebayor could finally leave Tottenham Hotspur.

According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur forward Emmanuel Adebayor may finally leave the club after talks were started over a potential departure.

Adebayor, 31, has been a bit-part figure under Mauricio Pochettino, and whilst many expected him to leave White Hart Lane having not been given a squad number for this season, the English transfer deadline passed earlier this month with Adebayor still on the books with Spurs.

However, it appears that all hope may not be lost for Spurs and Pochettino in their bid to get the high-earning forward out of North London.

The Sun report that meetings have been held this weekend over a deal which would see Adebayor head to the Middle East either on loan or permanently.

The transfer window in the Middle East is still open, meaning Adebayor can complete an immediate departure, rather than having to wait until January for his move, as many had worried.

Many clubs in the Middle East will be able to match Adebayor's wage demands, and he is a big enough name to be considered a real coup for a club there.

For Spurs, they would get another headache off their books, with Adebayor clearly not in Pochettino's plans for this season, making this potential move ideal for all involved.
