Emmanuel Adebayor is determined to play for Tottenham again next season despite the club's failure to qualify for the Champions League.

Emmanuel Adebayor, Tottenham - 0

Adebayor was a big hit last season at Tottenham, where he scored 18 times during a season-long loan from Premier League champions Manchester City.

Manager Harry Redknapp wants to sign the striker on a permanent basis, but his reported wage packet of £175,000 a week is way above what Spurs pay their top earners and City have warned there are plenty of other clubs interested in the Togo hitman's signature.

Chelsea's victory over Bayern Munich means Tottenham can not offer Adebayor Champions League football next term, but he still appears determined to stay at White Hart Lane.

Adebayor wrote on Twitter: "Loved my spell at Tottenham. We are working hard with the chairman to make it permanent. Will keep you informed!!"
