Manchester City's on loan striker Emmanuel Adebayor has said that he is extremely keen to stay in London with Tottenham next season.

Emmanuel Adebayor joined Tottenham on a loan deal till the end of the season. He has proven to be a massive hit with the club after getting them to the top four finish once again.

Even though the club finished in the top four a few seasons ago, this has been a much better achievement given the football they have played during the season. Emmanuel Adebayor has been a major part of it, and the striker reckons that he wants to make the loan deal a permanent one in the summer.

Another major stumbling blocks in his wish to become a Tottenham player permanently would be his wages, which is currently around £ 170,000 per week. He is currently able to play for Tottenham only because Manchester City are subsidising his wages to a great extent. Harry Redknapp said a few weeks ago that it would almost be impossible to sign the player permanently due to his astronomical wage demands. It remains to be seen if the former Arsenal striker will be able to take a wage cut to join Tottenham on a permanent deal.

"I don’t know yet whether I’ll be here or not next year but my first choice now would be to stay at Tottenham. I am not going to go on my knees and beg anyone; this is for others to sort out. If a deal can be done, then fine. I would love to play for Tottenham. If not, then trust me, I will keep Tottenham in my heart. I am a huge fan of Tottenham now and I love the club. If I am not at the club in the future, I will be following their games and wishing them luck," said Adebayor.
