The Togo international endured a woeful 2012/13 season following his permanent arrival in London from Manchester City, frustrating fans and his manager Andre Villas-Boas.
Since then the Portuguese coach has swooped for Roberto Soldado, who has started all three of the club’s Premier League clashes, netting twice in the process.
Jermain Defoe is seen as the number two option, leaving Adebayor some way from the starting XI.
This led to rumours of a move away from England in the run up to deadline day, with Besiktas said to be interested in his signature.
However, the ex-Arsenal forward says that he never intended to leave and is ready to battle his way into AVB’s plans.
“I decided with my manager, even before the start of the transfer window that I would not leave Tottenham and that’s what I did,” Adebayor told Sky Sports.
“I have never thought of leaving Spurs. I am here, my family feels great here and I do not see myself in another city.
“Today I will not tell you that I ‘m stronger than Soldado or Defoe or Lamela.
“We now have four in the attack, I do not know who ranks first, second or third but I know at the end I will be the first and it is the most important.”
Does Emmanuel Adebayor deserve another chance at Tottenham?
