Striker will only leave White Hart Lane for a club that matches his current pay-packet.
Emmanuel Adebayor has told Tottenham he will not be forced out of the club, reports the Daily Mirror.
The Togo striker has endured a miserable season for the north London outfit, scoring just 3 times in 23 Premier League appearances.
Adebayor was left out of the squad for Spurs’ 2-2 draw with Wigan on Saturday, even though he was not injured, with boss Andre Villas-Boas opting to include no forward on the bench.
The club are reportedly desperate to bring in a top-quality replacement this summer – regardless of where they finish in the league – but Adebayor has told Spurs he will only leave White Hart Lane for a club willing to match his £100,000 per week wages.
The 29-year-old’s move to Spurs from Manchester City was drawn out over several months for similar reasons last term, before Tottenham finally agreed a £5m deal in late August.
Tottenham will reportedly attempt to find the former Arsenal and Real Madrid striker a club in China, Russia, MLS or the UAE – with no top European sides likely to match his hefty wage demands.
Villas-Boas does not see Adebayor in his long-term plans at White Hart Lane and will turn his attentions to the likes of Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, Braga’s Eder or QPR forward Loic Remy in the summer.
