Togo international Emmanuel Adebayor on Friday announced that he had signed a three-year contract extension with Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir.

The former Arsenal, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur forward joined the Super League outfit in January, netting seven goals in 16 appearances last season as the club ended the campaign in second spot.


Adebayor, 33, also guided the club to the Turkish Cup final last season with Basaksehir set to participate in the UEFA Europa League during the current campaign.

"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 posted on social media.

Adebayor moved to Turkey in aftermath of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, having parted ways with Crystal Palace in July 2016.
