With Christian Benteke a hot commodity once again, Aston Villa have been linked with a number of potential replacements including Emmanuel Adebayor.
It worked with Tim Sherwood and Emmanuel Adebayor once before so it should come as no surprise that the two are being linked as the summer transfer rumor mill picks up. Sherwood oversaw a brief revival in Adebayor's fortunes when he was in charge at Spurs last season and the forward has reverted to his previous poor form under Mauricio Pochettino. Combine that with high wages and Spurs will likely be happy to help pay for the forward to ply his trade at Villa Park next season. This one makes sense if Benteke goes and likely even if he stays.

Emmanuel Adebayor has been allowed to return to his homeland - Togo - for personal reasons.

Adebayor has been practically replaced by Harry Kane in the Tottenham rotation this season so he won't be missed in the final gameweek. Tottenham face Everton tomorrow and will be fighting for points as they battle for a spot in the Europa Cup. Adebayor's future at Tottenham is shady at best and he will have to answer a number of questions in the summer. His fantasy value for next season will largely depend on where he lands in the transfer market.

Emmanuel Adebayor is unlikely to move to West Ham today.

There were rumors sending Adebayor to West Ham but it seems Tottenham are not keen on selling the striker as they are in a battle with the Hammers for a spot in the European Cups. Although the transfer window has closed, there is a small chance an Adebayor deal is announced soon, but we don't think it's likely at this point. Harry Kane seems like the main man at Tottenham at the moment and should be the one owned in fantasy leagues.

Paris Saint-Germain are exploring the possibility of taking Tottenham’s Emmanuel Adebayor on loan until the end of the season.

Sky Sports are running this story, suggesting discussions have already taken place between PSG and Tottenham, but it's noted that the French side could face competition for the striker's services from Harry Redknapp's Queens Park Rangers. Adebayor has scored 42 goals in 111 appearances for Spurs but has found first-team opportunities limited this season due to injuries, personal issues and of course, the form of Harry Kane. The Togo forward was also booed by sections of the home support when he captained the side for their Capital One Cup semi-final first leg tie against Sheffield United last week, and it may be best for all parties to allow Adebayor to explore other options before the transfer window closes on Monday.

Striker Emmanuel Adebayor has been given permission by Tottenham to return to Togo for personal reasons.

The club announced the news on their official website this morning, stating "This is a private matter and so we will not be providing any further comment." Adebayor started the season as Mauricio Pochettino's first-choice forward but struggled for form and had been missing from the squad completely in recent weeks amid rumours of injuries and problems with his family back in Togo. For now the 30-year-old is out of the reckoning for Spurs, which leaves Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane as the only available strikers in the squad.

The negative atmosphere created by Tottenham's fans at their White Hart Lane home is damaging the players' confidence, says Emmanuel Adebayor.

It's been a difficult start to the season for Mauricio Pochettino. Spurs players were booed during and after Sunday's 2-1 home defeat by Stoke and have lost four of their six home games in the Premier League this season, leaving the team down in 12th place. Adebayor believes the negative atmosphere in the stadium is harming the team, stating "When you are playing at home and your own fans start booing you after a few minutes then it is harder. It might be better to play away at the moment." Blaming the fans for the lacklustre performances of the players probably isn't going to help improve the atmosphere any time soon.

Emmanuel Adebayor starred for Tottenham as they thrashed Queens Park Rangers 4-0 in Week 2.

We all know Adebayor can blow hot or cold, but when he's happy and enjoying his football he remains one of the most complete strikers in the Premier League. Sunday was an example of the striker at his best, with an assist, a goal and a couple of shots on target, as well as a whole lot of hard work for his team. Adebayor was rewarded with 19 points in the Yahoo game, and it could be a prolific seasons if he remains the focal point of a exciting attacking line-up under Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham wrap up their preseason with a 2-1 win over FC Schalke, thanks to goals from Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado.

Mauricio Pochettino handed Emmanuel Adebayor the start, but both he and Soldado both logged 45 minutes of pitch time, with the Spaniard coming on to begin the second half. Tottenham's attack looked fluid, as Christian Eriksen was given the cental role in midfield and Lamela out wide. Eric Dier was handed a start at center back and looked comfortable in his new surroundings. There should be plenty of fantasy assets to go around from Spurs this season, perhaps none with more value than whoever emerges as the preferred striker. Currently, it is advantage Adebayor.

Tottenham beat Celtic 6-1 in a pre-season friendly in Helsinki.

So Spurs continue their good pre-season form with a thumping win over a depleted Celtic side. The goals came from Harry Kane, Roberto Soldado, Lewis Holtby, Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen, before Adebayor's scored the sixth goal from the penalty spot on his first appearance since recovering from malaria last month.

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.

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.
