David Moyes has no interest in signing former Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor for Sunderland.

The Black Cats were offered the 32-year-old, who is available on a free transfer, earlier in the summer.

But Moyes says he is not looking to bring the ex-Manchester City and Arsenal forward to the Stadium of Light.

When asked by the Echo whether there is interest in him, Moyes said: "No.

"I didn't see it being what we wanted at the moment."

Moyes told the Echo earlier this month his summer transfer business was done after making 10 new signings but clubs can still sign free agents outside of the transfer windows.

Adebayor is currently without a club after a deal to Lyon broke down.

Sunderland are short of attacking options, with David Moyes relying on Jermain Defoe to lead the line for the club this season.

The club failed to land another striker before deadline day but Victor Anichebe did arrive on a free after the window closed.

The former Everton and West Brom striker is currently building his fitness levels and is yet to make an appearance for Sunderland.

Fabio Borini is out for two months with a thigh injury, which meant Moyes had to rely on Duncan Watmore and Joel Asoro to lead the line against QPR in the EFL Cup, with Defoe rested ahead of the home game with Crystal Palace at the Stadium of Light.
