Emmanuel Adebayor keen to remain at Tottenham: I love Spurs more than Arsenal

Goal :    Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has expressed his desire to remain at White Hart Lane next season and compete in the Champions League with Spurs.

The Togolese forward, on loan from Manchester City in 2011-12, notched an impressive tally of 18 goals as he helped to fire Harry Redknapp’s side into the top four.

And the 28-year-old has said that he will not “beg” to stay in north London but will always appreciate his time at the club.

“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,” Adebayor told the London Evening Standard.

“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 played at Arsenal for three years but today I keep Tottenham in my heart more than Arsenal, even though I haven’t played here for as long.”
