The Togolese has been shown the Eastlands door after being informed he is not in the plans of Roberto Mancini for the season.
Having impressed in a loan spell with Real Madrid last season, where he scored eight goals, the former Arsenal forward has been continually linked with a move to Spurs
Now according to The Daily Mirror, the 27-year-old has landed himself a lifeline by Harry Redknapp, who has offered him a loan deal.
Adebayor will now have a medical at the club before completing his move to White Hart Lane.
Spurs have reportedly agreed to pay a larger percentage of his £170,000-a-week wages than they were originally willing to splash out.
However, it will not be in time for him to make his Spurs debut against his parent club Manchester City on Sunday.
