Spurs sold Gareth Bale during the transfer window but have bolstered their squad with a number of eye-catching signings and there are now a host of options for Andre Villas-Boas in attack.
Adebayor had been linked with a move elsewhere but he insists he is happy at the club and had no intention of going anywhere.
He told All Africa.com: "I decided with my manager, even before the start of the transfer window that I would not leave Tottenham and that's what I did.
"I have never thought of leaving Spurs. I am here, my family feels great here and I do not see myself in another city."
Roberto Soldado has gone straight into Tottenham's starting line-up since signing from Valencia and Erik Lamela was then bought from Roma in a club-record deal, while Jermain Defoe remains a key a part of Villas-Boas' plans.
However, Adebayor is confident that he will ultimately emerge as the first-choice striker under Villas-Boas.
He said: "Today I will not tell you that I 'm stronger than Soldado or Defoe or Lamela.
"We now have four in the attack, I do not know who ranks first, second or third but I know at the end I will be the first and it is the most important."
