Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly made a surprise move to take Manchester City wantaway striker Emmanuel Adebayor to White Hart Lane.

The former Arsenal forward's future has been the subject of much speculation since the beginning of the new Premier League season, as he has been handed only two starts in City's last five games in all competitions.

For his part, the 26-year-old recently admitted that he could walk away from Eastlands if regular first-team football is not available at his current club. And the signing of Mario Balotelli from Inter is also thought to have produced an adverse reaction, with the tall hitman believed to be fearing his status in the pecking order.

Now The Mirror claims that Spurs have now held talks with City over a loan move for the ex-Monaco player, with the north London club willing to pay close to half of the striker's astronomic £170,000-a-week wages.

Adebayor scored 14 times in 28 appearances for City last term.
