Adebayor Signed on Free Transfer by Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace have signed former Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur striker, Emmanuel Adebayor on a free transfer lasting until the end of the season.

The Togo star would wear the number 25 shirt during his stay at Palace. Adebayor had been a free agent for most of the current campaign after being released by Tottenham.

The 31 year-old striker was available after being released by Tottenham in September and has scored 94 Premier League goals for Spurs, Arsenal and Manchester City.

Adebayor’s last appearance came on 3 May 2015, playing six minutes in Spurs’s 1-0 home defeat by Man City.

Two weeks ago, Palace boss Alan Pardew confirmed his interest in signing the Togo international. Palace are the third-joint lowest scorers in the league with 24 goals in 23 games this season, and lie 11th in the table.

Strikers Fraizer Campbell, Dwight Gayle, Connor Wickham and Marouane Chamakh have managed just one league goal between them so far.

Adebayor tweeted for the first time in 135 days after signing for Palace:


Pardew made a failed attempt to sign Adebayor in 2006 when he was in charge at West Ham.

Emmanuel Adebayor  is a Togolese professional footballer. He previously played for English clubs Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur, as well as Metz, Monaco and Real Madrid. He was voted African Footballer of the Year for 2008.

The player joined Arsenal instead from French club Monaco and went on to play for Manchester City, followed by a loan spell at Real Madrid, before joining Spurs in 2012.

Meanwhile, he has been keeping fit with a personal trainer every day but the player will be assessed by the club before their game on Saturday against Stoke in the FA Cup.
