Tottenham set to be offered cut-price deal in January

Manchester City are set to offer Tottenham a cut-price deal to sign on-loan Emmanuel Adebayor on a permanent basis in January the Metro understands.

The Togo international has been a revelation at White Hart Lane with his arrival and goalscoring exploits coinciding with Harry Redknapp’s side going seven games unbeaten in the Premier League.

Spurs are currently paying half of the 27-year-old’s £175,000-a-week wages and have an option to buy him outright for £14 million once his loan deal concludes at the end of the season.

Three goals in seven starts has convinced Redknapp that the striker is worth tying down sooner with Adebayor also keen to make the move long-term after expressing his desire to leave City.

Boss Roberto Mancini is willing to let the striker leave the Etihad Stadium for good after his troublemaking last summer as he eyes up a swoop for Napoli pair Edinson Cavani and Marek Hamsik.

It’s thought the club will accept a bid of around £10 million for the player as they look to bankroll a bid for the Serie A pair who Mancini see’s as the final piece of the jigsaw in his quest do deliver the clubs first top-flight league title since 1968.
