Emmanuel Adebayor signs 18 months deal with Turkish football club

EMMANUEL ADEBAYOR has signed for Turkish Super Lig club Istanbul Basaksehir. The former Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham striker had been a free agent since leaving Crystal Palace last summer.

According to BeINSPORTS Turkey, Adebayor has signed an 18-month deal with the club. The 32-year-old managed just one goal for Palace last season after spending six months at Selhurst Park.
Adebayor had been linked with a move to Turkish champions Besiktas, but some reports state the club wasn’t prepared to meet his demands.

He had wanted an annual salary of £3million (around £58,000-a-week) but Beskitas – currently top of the Turkish Super Lig – were only prepared to pay him £2million.

That’s when Basaksehir stepped in.

Emmanuel Adebayor had been without a club for the past six months after he was released by Crystal Palace. Adebayor shared the news on his Instagram page and wrote;
"SEA, God has perfect timing; never early, never late. I am pleased to announce that I have reached an agreement with Istanbul Başakşehir FK. New league, new club, new challenge... but we all speak the same language which is football. Very excited to meet my teammates, the staff and the fans here. Lets get to work right away ! "
