Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has been diagnosed with malaria.
Not the ideal way to kick off pre-season training. Adebayor was admitted to hospital on Saturday with what Spurs describe as a "mild bout" of malaria and will be unable to return to training for at least a week. He will stay in England to recover while the club tour North America. Jul 14 - 3:24 AM

Emmanuel Adebayor insists he has no plans to leave Tottenham.

Adebayor was left out in the cold under Andre Villas-Boas, but things improved massively on Tim Sherwood's appointment. The striker went on to play 24 games, scoring 14 goals and providing four assists for his team mates. There had been rumours that Adebayor planned to move on again in the summer, but he still has two years left on his contract and the quotes in the report on Sky Sports suggest he's keen to stay at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham have announced that Tim Sherwood has left his coaching position at the Club.

Chairman Daniel Levy commented, "We appointed Tim mid-season as someone who knew both the players and the Club. We agreed an 18-month contract with a break clause at the end of the season and we have now exercised that option." This decision was expected. Sherwood has done a decent job since taking over from Andre Villas-Boas, getting the best out of Emmanuel Adebayor, but the team continued the habit of losing heavily against the top four sides and the coach did himself no favours in front of the press, publicly speaking out against the board and some of the players when keeping it in house would've been the sensible approach. A new manager with more experience was always likely to come in this summer in an effort to launch another assault on Champions League football next season, with Mauricio Pochettino of Southampton and Ajax head coach Frank De Boer understood to be the front-runners.

Tottenham beat Manchester United to a place in next season's Europa League after a 3-0 win over Aston Villa.

It doesn't get much easier than this. Tottenham barely had to break sweat to pick up the result to secure 6th place against a very disappointing Aston Villa side, racing in to a 3-0 lead before half-time. Paulinho opened the scoring after 14 minutes before Nathan Baker headed Danny Rose's cross past his own goalkeeper to put Spurs in complete control. Within minutes, Sandro's shot hit Gabby Agbonlahor's arm and a penalty was awarded, Emmanuel Adebayor scoring from the spot for his 14th goal of the season. It put a small amount of gloss on a underwhelming season for Tottenham, in what was probably Tim Sherwood's last game as manager.

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.

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.
