Adebayor proved to be a real deal, on his debut scoring a goal against Birmingham City just 21 minutes into the game.

In the next season, Adebayor’s form fell, as he stopped at 10 goals in 26 league games.

After that, he moved to the rival team Manchester City for £25million, and signed a five year contract, but the details weren’t made public.
