Emmanuel Adebayor insists he has no plans to follow Tim Sherwood out of Tottenham Hotspur but admits his future remains uncertain as the club search for a new manager.

The former Arsenal and Manchester City striker found himself exiled from the first team under former manager Andre Villas-Boas but was handed a reprieve by Sherwood during the second half of the season.

The striker found the back of the net 14 times following his recall and insists he has no intention of leaving White Hart Lane despite his history of acrimonious splits with former employers.

"I will be a Tottenham player (next season)," Adebayor told the Daily Express.

"At the moment I have got two years left on my contract. But what happens if I wake up and what has happened to me in the past has happened again?

"What if the chairman called me and if the new manager says about moving me on, what do you want me to do?

"But it is like I said. At the moment I can't consider going anywhere."

Adebayor appeared to be on the brink of an exit from Tottenham throughout the first half of the season having fallen drastically out of favour under Villas-Boas. The situation worked to strengthen the idea that the Togolese striker is simply financially driven, something he vehemently denies.

"I don't know why people keep saying, 'Ade's always playing for a contract'. I never played for a contract. I always have a four or five-year contract wherever I go to," added Adebayor.

"I had just signed a big contract when I left Arsenal. I left Monaco after I had just signed a big contract.

"So I played for Arsenal for three years. So are you going to tell me that for three years I was looking for a contract all those three years? No. I had just signed a contract and the manager said to me, 'Adebayor, I don't need you anymore. You have to move on'.

"When I left Manchester City, I still had four years' contract left. So what am I looking for? Am I looking for even more contract?

"So when I came to Tottenham, the first year was on loan when everything went very well with Harry Redknapp. I came back, I signed, we got this new manager AVB, things are not going so well. Everybody said, 'He's signed his contract, he became lazy'.

"If I sign a contract today that says I am worth £1m, tomorrow I want to be worth £2m. If they give me £2m, I want £10m. That is what football is about."
