Adebayor: I will leave if Tottenham want me to

Although he says that he is happy at Spurs, the Togolese admits that he will depart if he is not in the club's future plans, while he has also criticised the team's recent form
Emanuel Adebayor says that he will leave Tottenham if the club do not hold him in their first-team plans, even though he is currently happy at White Hart Lane.

The Togolese striker was signed by Spurs on a £5 million deal at the start of this season and spent last term on loan in north London but has often been overlooked in favour of Jermain Defoe in 2012-13.

"It's a good club," he told reporters. "I work hard to sign for the club so I cannot see myself moving now, but if the club want me out, I don't have a choice.

"I'm here, I have just signed a new four-year deal. I'm happy, my family's happy in London, I'm happy playing for Tottenham."

However, despite being happy at the club, the 28-year-old admits that neither he nor his teammates are pleased with Tottenham's current form.

"We're all frustrated about the way things are going," he continued.

"I don't know what's not clicking. Hopefully it will start clicking as soon as possible otherwise, trust me, we will find ourselves in difficulty.

"My friends tell me to keep positive so I don't really want to think about how bad it could be. If we get worse than this, I think we'd be dead.

"At the moment things are looking bad, but we just have to find a way to get through this. We have to improve because we're not playing the best game at the moment."
