Spurs’ Mauricio Pochettino: I always wanted to keep Adebayor

Adebayor was one of a number of players who either wanted to leave White Hart Lane last month or were the subject of intense speculation. In the end, he was denied a loan move to West Ham United – the Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy, refused to sanction it because of the ill feeling between the clubs – while Younès Kaboul, Étienne Capoue and Paulinho also stayed.
Aaron #Lennon pushed for a loan move and got it on deadline day – to #Everton – and he followed Kyle Naughton out of the club, the right-back having completed a permanent £5m transfer to Swansea City earlier in the month.

Pochettino said that Lennon was the only player who had been to see him to inform him that he wanted to leave. With Adebayor, he said, it had become a club matter – in other words, one for Levy – but Pochettino said that he was pleased with how the situation had ended up, even though #Adebayor remains at the bottom of the pecking order up front.
