Adebayor slams quit reports

09 May 2008 - 14:48:48

Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has angrily slammed reports that he has asked to leave the club after being denied a new bumper contract.

Several reports on Friday claimed the Togo international was looking to quit the Emirates Stadium after being denied an £80,000 per week new contract.

However, the 30-goal marksman insists nothing could be further from the truth and that he is happy to stay with the Gunners.

Arsenal have already lost midfielder Mathieu Flamini on a free transfer to AC Milan this week, while Alex Hleb continues to be linked with a summer switch to Internazionale.

"I am very happy here. Reports which suggest I have threatened to quit are rubbish," said Adebayor in a statement. "I love the club and the fans.

"We have a great set of players here with a fantastic team spirit. We have had a good season, but next year we want to go one better by winning a trophy."
