Emmanuel Adebayor

Former Arsenal striker Nwankwo Kanu wishes departing Tottenham Hotspur man Emmanuel Adebayor the best of luck.

Former Arsenal striker Nwankwo Kanu has taken to social networking site Twitter to send a message to departing Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

Adebayor is on his way out of Tottenham after reaching a mutual agreement with the club which will see him released from his contract.

Adebayor initially joined Spurs on a season-long loan deal from Premier League rivals Manchester City in the summer of 2011.

The former Arsenal star played well for Spurs during the 2011-12 campaign, scoring 17 goals in the Premier League.

The 31-year-old signed a permanent contract with the North London outfit in the summer of 2012 amid hype and expectations.

However, Adebayor failed to replicate his form of 2011-12 over the next three years and even struggled to get into the starting line-up last season.

The former AS Monaco star scored five goals and created 27 chances in 25 Premier League appearances for Tottenham during the 2012-13 campaign.

In 2013-14, Adebayor scored 11 goals and created 34 chances in 21 league matches, while last season he found the target twice and created 12 chances in 13 Premier League appearances.
