Adebayor edges closer to City

16 Jul 2009 - 07:23:42

Emmanuel Adebayor's move to Manchester City has edged closer after he was granted a new work permit.

The Arsenal and Togo striker attended a hearing in Manchester on Wednesday and the red tape surrounding his proposed £25million move to Eastlands has now been completed.

Adebayor has yet to undergo a medical with City but the 25-year-old striker is believed to be on the cusp becoming Mark Hughes' latest big-money signing.

Hughes has already signed Carlos Tevez, Gareth Barry, Roque Santa Cruz and goalkeeper Stuart Taylor during a busy summer of transfer activity.

He has also been linked with a £35million move for Chelsea and England captain John Terry.

Speaking earlier in the week, Hughes was hopeful of being able to complete a deal for Adebayor, who has been linked with AC Milan and Chelsea in recent times.

He said: "There have been discussions and possibly a deal to be done but nothing has been concluded."

Adebayor has scored 62 goals in 142 appearances for Arsenal since he joined the Gunners from AS Monaco in 2006.
