Played for both Man City and Spurs
Ahead of their International Champions Cup clash, FootyOn writers pick out five footballers to have played for both Man City and Spurs.
With preparation well underway for the impending new campaign, two Premier League title hopefuls collide.
Manchester City and Spurs will meet in a friendly match in Nashville this weekend and will feature a familiar face for the north London side.
Kyle Walker (15/8 with betway to win the title in his first season) recently joined City from Tottenham and that got us thinking; which footballers have played for both Man City and Spurs in the modern era?
Kyle Walker – Spurs (2009-2017) Man City (2017-present)

Joining Tottenham from Sheffield United in 2009, he then embarked on three loan spells before cementing his place as first-choice right back at White Hart Lane.
He was named in the PFA Team of the Year for the second time after the 2016/17 season, before his £50,000,000 switch to the Etihad.
Emmanuel Adebayor – Man City (2009-2012) Spurs (2012-2015)
Togo’s all-time leading scorer joined the Sky Blues when the club’s new riches were beginning to make an impact.
Despite playing only 34 domestic games during his spell in Manchester, he managed to bag an impressive 15 goals before being joining Tottenham on loan in 2011, then permanently in 2012.
There, he netted 18 in 59 league games before switching to fellow London club Crystal Palace.
Vedran Corluka – Man City (2007-2008) Spurs (2008-2012)
After consistent performances for Dinamo Zagreb, the Croatian joined City and played predominantly at right back but was also deployed as a central defender.
However, it is Tottenham (10/1 to win the title this coming season) where he is most remembered by Premier League fans. He played 81 league games for Spurs and was one of four Croatians that were at White Hart Lane at a time.
Paul Stewart – Man City (1987-1988) Spurs (1988-1992)
After over 200 first team appearances for Blackpool, he joined Manchester City in March 1987 for a fee of £200,000, but was unable to keep them in the First Division or then get promoted.
Bought by Tottenham as a striker, when his goals dried up he successfully converted to midfield in a talented side featuring Gary Lineker and Paul Gascoigne.
Chris Jones – Spurs (1973-1982) Man City (1982)
The skillful forward grew up through the Spurs youth system and soon made his way to the first team.
In total he made 185 league and cup outings, scoring 42 goals in his nine seasons with the club.
He was then sold in 1982 to Man City for £100,000, where he only featured three times.
