Cape Town - Striker Emmanuel Adebayor wanted to make the switch to West Ham after turning down several other offers from clubs in England and across Europe.
The Mirror report that Emmanuel Adebayor held talks with Tottenham Hotspur chairman, Daniel Levy, to discuss his position at the club following a turbulent transfer window for the Togo striker.
Adebayor reportedly rejected the chance to earn £245,000-a-week (before tax) to join a club in Qatar while the Togo international also decided against leaving Spurs for Queens Park Rangers and Stoke.
With Tottenham Hotspur only wishing to let Adebayor leave on loan, his hopes of a move to Roma or Paris Saint-Germain were also dashed.
"The transfer window was open for a month and we all knew what was happening. It didn't all happen in 48 hours." said Adebayor.
A deadline day move to West Ham United also broke down because Levy refused to subsidise any portion of Adebayor's £100,000-a-week wages that he earns at White Hart Lane.
"The club decided to send me out on loan, which I was pleased with. There were five good clubs interested and I [narrowed it down to] three before choosing the one I wanted. But Mr Levy was against the one I chose, because it was a rival.
“But I'm very happy to stay at the club and do my job."
According to sources in England, Adebayor and Levy have buried the hatchet with the player set to fight for his place in the Spurs squad.
