Sky sources understand that Tim Sherwood will be replaced as manager of Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
Sherwood was appointed in December as Andre Villas-Boas' successor on an 18-month contract and made a bright start winning five of his first six game after restoring Emmanuel Adebayor to the first team. However, since then Spurs have been on a poor run, winning just five of the last sixteen, being knocked out of the Capital One Cup and the Europa League as well as falling to seventh in the Premier League. In truth Sherwood always showed glimpses of a man out of his depth, both tactically and in front of the press, and the cracks had started to widen over the past month as his side were thrashed 4-0 by Chelsea and Liverpool. He will now be able to learn his trade away from the spotlight of a club aspiring for Champions League football, while Spurs can look to bring in someone with the required experience. Dutch national coach Louis van Gaal odds-on favourite to come in after the World Cup. Apr 7 - 9:17 AM

Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood expects to have Emmanuel Adebayor available for next Monday's Premier League match against Sunderland at White Hart Lane.

The striker has missed Spurs' last three games with a hamstring problem and gash on his heel but returned to training with the squad on Tuesday and is now in line to make his comeback against Sunderland in Week 33. With Roberto Soldado stretched from the pitch against Liverpool, Adebayor will be expected to slot straight back in to the starting line-up.

Tottenham are worried about Emmanuel Adebayor's status ahead of their trip to Anfield.

Adebayor is dealing with a cut on the back of his heel and is considered doubtful for the match. If he can't go, Roberto Soldado will lead the line against the Reds. Adebayor has been playing well lately but has been inconsistent on the fantasy sheet, making him a risky play even when healthy. Against easier opposition, I wouldn't have a problem playing him, but I would not recommend him against Liverpool.

Tottenham have confirmed Thursday night's Europa League clash with FC Dnipro will go ahead as planned.

The game has been at risk due to recent civil unrest in Ukraine, but the last-32 tie will kick off at 6pm GMT after confirmation was finally received at a pre-match meeting with UEFA this morning. Tim Sherwood has decided to rest Emmanuel Adebayor, Aaron Lennon, Kyle Walker, Mousa Dembele, Younes Kaboul and Hugo Lloris, while Sandro, Erik Lamela and Vlad Chiriches are out with injury.

Emmanuel Adebayor scored twice as Tottenham maintained their challenge for a top-four finish with victory over Newcastle.

It was a comfortable victory for Tim Sherwood's men, winning 4-0 away at a Newcastle side badly missing Yohan Cabaye (sold), Cheick Tiote (injured) and Loic Remy (suspended). Adebayor continued his renaissance with two more goals to make it eight in his last ten games, while Paulinho and Nacer Chadli added further strikes, and it could've been more. At the other end of the pitch Hugo Lloris made three fine saves to keep Newcastle out, and Younes Kaboul made an impressive return alongside Jan Vertonghen in the heart of defence. Liverpool remain favourites for the fourth Champions League spot, but Spurs are keeping the pressure on.

A second half goal from Emmanuel Adebayor proved to be a game winner for Tottenham as they clung to a crucial 1-0 victory to leapfrog Everton into 5th in the table.

In a tight goalless affair, Spurs earned a free kick far away from goal. The referee allowed Kyle Walker to take the kick quickly without the defense having time to set up. He then sailed a pass to Adebayor who was able to get the ball under control while being draped by two defenders, and was able to finish past Tim Howard for his 6th goal of the season, all under the tutelage of Tim Sherwood. Spurs have a chance to chisel away at a top four spot with a midweek trip to a currently vapid Newcastle squad.

Emmanuel Adebayor contiuned his rebirth under Spurs boss Tim Sherwood, scoring twice today to help Tottenham Hotspur win their fifth straight road match in a 1-3 final with Swansea City.

The five game road win streak is the best of its kind for Spurs since 1960, the very magical season in which they pulled off their league and cup double championship. Adebayor now has five goals in six games since Sherwood gave him a chance, and the new boss couldn't be looking smarter right now. The first goal for Adebayor came from a precise cross delivered by Christian Eriksen which Ade headed in, and the second came on the breakaway, with Danny Rose finding him. Adebayor's work rate and commitment has always been a question mark, and it may be only a matter of time that he drifts out of games, but for now he is focused, and his skill set is class. Now is the time to use him if you are ever going to.

Tottenham recorded their second consecutive win at Old Trafford as 2-1 victory over Manchester United lifted them to sixth in the Premier League.

Emmanuel Adebayor and Christian Eriksen scored the goals to put Spurs in to a deserved 2-0 lead before Danny Welbeck grabbed a goal back immediately. It was then all Manchester United for the final twenty minutes, but Tottenham hung on for a memorable victory and Tim Sherwood remains unbeaten in the Premier League, with three wins and a draw in his first four games as manager. This was a fourth home defeat of the season for United, and they drop to seventh in the table, 11 points behind leaders Arsenal.

Emmanuel Adebayor scored his first two league goals of the season to help managerless Tottenham beat Southampton 3-2.

When this fan saw the starting line-up he was concerned. Interim manager Tim Sherwood played an unbelievably attacking line-up for an away game, including two strikers (Adebayor alongside Roberto Soldado), Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen, Gylfi Sigurdsson and no real defensive midfielder. But it worked. Spurs fell behind early on but edged the play in general in an open game and Adebayor's two goals sandwiched an own goal and gave the team a vital 3 points to keep them in touch with the Top 4.

Two goals in the final 10 minutes saw West Ham come back to beat managerless Tottenham at White Hart Lane after Emmanuel Adebayor had given the home side the lead.

Adebayor started his first league game of the season and was impressive, working hard along the front line, running the channel, holding the ball up and generally being a nuisance. He scored a fine goal after good work from Jermain Defoe but it wasn't enough as West Ham's long-ball tactics in the final 10 minutes paid off with two goals to complete a miserable week for Spurs. However, Adebayor did himself no harm and he could start at Southampton this weekend, possibly alongside Roberto Soldado.

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor is still struggling with a groin problem so is doubtful for the match against Fulham, but Andre-Villas Boas has no new injuries to worry about.

So no new injuries for Spurs, but Andre Villas-Boas must decide who to play upfront. Roberto Soldado showed improved interplay against Manchester United but fluffed his big chance in front of goal, so Jermain Defoe will be hoping for a start. Midfielder Christian Eriksen (ankle), defender Danny Rose (toe) and striker Harry Kane (back) all remain out.

Forward Emmanuel Adebayor is a doubt because of a groin injury ahead of Tottenham's game against Manchester United, while Christian Eriksen, Danny Rose and Harry Kane all remain unavailable.

Adebayor got 45 minutes from the bench against Manchester City and may have been hoping to push for a start, but those hopes have been scuppered by an injury. Roberto Soldado continues to struggle so Jermain Defoe may get his chances this weekend, either alongside or in place of the Spanish striker.

Emmanuel Adebayor is in line for his first Tottenham appearance of the season in the Europa League meeting with Sheriff Tiraspol in Moldova.

The Togo international had been training with the reserves so it is slightly surprising to read that he could be set for a first team return. There is no doubt that a fully fit and firing Adebayor could still be a useful option for Andre Villas-Boas, but he's likely to find himself behind Roberto Soldado and Jermain Defoe for Premier League matches and a January move is still entirely possible.

Emmanuel Adebayor has been asked to train with Tottenham's reserves.

Adebayor returned to London towards the end of last month, but he has gone back to Africa, for what Andre Villas-Boas describes as "personal reasons". A slightly agitated AVB added "Up to when I find it appropriate, he will train with the development team.", which suggests all is not well between the pair. There seems little chance of the Togo international getting ahead of Roberto Soldado or Jermain Defoe any time soon.

Emmanuel Adebayor has declared that he never considered leaving Tottenham Hotspur and is relishing the competition for places at White Hart Lane.

It was widely reported that Adebayor was for sale in the summer window, but the striker has denied this and claims he is happy to fight for his place. There is no doubt that a full fit and firing Adebayor could still be a useful option for Andre Villas-Boas, but he's likely to find himself behind Roberto Soldado and Jermain Defoe in the pecking order and how long he's happy to sit on the bench remains to be seen.
