The Togolese frontman was drafted into White Hart Lane on a permanent deal last summer having previously impressed during a season-long loan.

Injuries and a trip to the Africa Cup of Nations in the New Year have prevented him from making the desired impact in 2012/13.

Adebayor, who has been restricted to 16 Premier League starts and has netted just four times in the top flight, concedes that he has found the going tough, but claims to be improving all the time.

He told Spurs' official website: "Don't get me wrong, it's been a difficult season for me with injuries but I feel I'm getting fitter now and it's strange, I'm getting fitter and it's the end of the season.

"We've got two games to go and I will give everything I've got left in the locker."

Adebayor was among the goals on Wednesday as Spurs hit back to claim a 2-2 draw at capital rivals Chelsea and keep their top-four ambitions alive.

On that game, he added: "Even at 2-1 we had to believe we had the quality to score.

"Clint Dempsey came in, Gylfi (Sigurdsson) came in, we know with that quality we can score at any time. In the end we scored late and we wanted the third goal, but it didn't happen for us."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
