Former Tottenham and Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has been able to agree a new contract with Turkish outfit IstanbulBaşakşehir.

The 33-year-old has now signed a new contract that will keep him at the club for three more years.

Togo international Emmanuel Adebayor has put pen to paper on a fresh three year deal with Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir.

The former Arsenal and Manchester City striker joined the club during the second half of last season, where he contributed six goals in 12 league outings.

“I’m very excited to announce that we’ll be extending our journey together. Special thanks to everyone that is part of the Istanbul Basaksehir,” Adebayor wrote on his official Twitter account. The 33-year-old was without a club for over six months, but managed to secure a deal with Basaksehir following his impressive showing for Togo at the African Cup of Nations.

Adebayor had a bright career during his time at Arsenal where he notched 62 goals between 2005 and 2009.
