No move plans for Adebayor

Emmanuel Adebayor insists he will not be looking to leave Arsenal this summer even though the club has once again failed to win any silverware. The Togo international was linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium for most of last summer before eventually committing his future to the Gunners. However, the 25-year-old has urged Arsene Wenger to sign several new players in the summer to strengthen a squad that he believes is weaker than it is has been in past seasons. Adebayor told the London Evening Standard: "I think we have taken a step backwards - not only me but the team. "We need some players. We had Hleb go to Barcelona and Flamini go to Milan last summer and it was quite difficult to play. "The team is quite young and we have tried to make the best of everything. Don't forget, I was injured three times this season. "At the beginning of the season it was quite difficult but we have showed we have passed that moment. Now what are we going to achieve next season? That's what we have to fight for. "Before signing for Arsenal, people were telling me I had the chance to win things. "Now I am empty-handed but I don't have any reason for leaving until I get the trophies that I came here for."
