Emmanuel Adebayor has asked Tottenham to give him a £1million pay off to leave the club after being banished to the reserves.

Adebayor has fallen out of favour under Andre Villas-Boas and after failing to earn a transfer away during the summer was made to train with the youth team this week.

QPR have expressed an interest in signing the 29-year-old on-loan but Adebayor has asked Spurs to cancel his contract and make him a free agent.
