Former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp wants to sign the striker for QPR.
Emmanuel Adebayor has demanded Tottenham pay him a staggering £1 million to leave the club after he was dumped in the reserves.
The Togo striker has slipped down the pecking order at White Hart Lane this season and is no longer part of Andre Villas-Boas’ plans following the £27m arrival of Roberto Soldado from Valencia in the summer, despite a decent showing in pre-season.
After failing to secure a move away from north London during the transfer window Adebayor was banished to train with the youth team and Metro understand he has requested chairman Daniel Levy cancel his contract and make him a free agent so he can find a new club.
Adebayor still has two years remaining on his £100,000-a-week contract and won’t walk away cheaply from the club he joined on a permanently last season following a successful loan spell during 2011/12, in which he scored 17 goals.
Former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp expressed an interest in bringing the 29-year-old to QPR on loan this week but it seems the former Arsenal and Manchester City misfit is eyeing a lucrative switch to a Middle Eastern club.
It’s likely Adebayor will push Tottenham to release him next week and allow him to seek new employment.
