Emmanuel Adebayor sends message on Twitter after signing for Crystal Palace

Emmanuel Adebayor

Emmanuel Adebayor has agreed a deal with Crystal Palace.

Palace confirmed the signing of Adebayor yesterday, and the Togolese forward took to Twitter to send a message following his move to Selhurst Park.

Palace boss Alan Pardew has been hoping to sign a striker for much of the transfer window, and he settled on the risky move for Adebayor.

The 31-year-old forward has been out of contract since September, when his deal with Spurs was cancelled.

He was not being played at White Hart Lane, and he opted to leave the club to search for a new move.

Palace have taken the risk on Adebayor, looking to bring some much-needed goalscoring threat to their side.

Connor Wickham is the only striker to have scored a goal for the Eagles this term, and if Adebayor can convert even half the chances presented to him by Palace’s wealth of attacking midfielders, he should reach the double figure tally for goals before the end of the season.

He is a risky signing, due to criticisms of his attitude and personal life, but Adebayor is known to impress when he has just signed for a club, and Pardew really need to bring in a new attacker.

He sounds keen to start playing for Palace, and Eagles fans will be hoping to see the striker feature this weekend as Pardew’s men take on Stoke City at Selhurst Park in the FA Cup fourth round.
