The 31-year-old, who has been at Spurs since 2011 – was told that he had no future with the north London club and both sides have mutually agreed to end his contract.
The former Arsenal and Manchester City striker, who refused to join Aston Villa on a loan move this summer but had insisted that he turned down to facilitate a permanent transfer away.

I can confirm that I have reached an agreement with Tottenham Hotspur to terminate my contract. I wish to thank the club and the fans for my time there and I wish them well for the forthcoming season.
