Crystal Palace suddenly got a lot younger thanks to the expiring contracts of Emmanuel Adebayor and Marouane Chamakh.
The club confirmed it won't be retaining the attacking duo this summer after a disappointing career in blue-and-red stripes for the former Arsenal pair. Adebayor joined the club in the winter transfer window as a free transfer following his release from Tottenham, scoring one Premier League goal in 11 appearances with the Eagles. Chamakh, meanwhile, has hardly produced in South London since arriving from the Gunners in the summer of 2013. The Moroccan international made 10 league appearances (nine of them as a substitute) but failed to score a goal. Jun 13 - 4:22 AM

Alan Pardew confirms Emmanuel Adebayor, Yohan Cabaye and Connor Wickham "should" be back for the visit of Norwich on Saturday.

Adebayor suffered a knock while on international duty with Togo and despite posting a social media update saying his initial scan was clear, the striker was not risked at West Ham. Meanwhile, Cabaye picked up an unspecified injury in training with France and the midfielder hadn’t recovered sufficiently to be considered in game week thirty-two. Connor Wickham began light training last Thursday after missing more than a month due to a thigh strain and the clubs joint top scorer could return to the bench. James McArthur and Marouane Chamakh are hoping to be back later this month.

Crystal Palace's rotten luck continues as the club has now gone winless in its last nine Premier League matches following a 2-1 home loss to Watford.

The Eagles have not won a Premier League match dating all the way back to August. However, they have scored in each of the past four after going goalless in the first five matches of their dubious streak. Emmanuel Adebayor scored his first goal in a Crystal Palace uniform and his first Premier League goal since October of 2015. The former Spurs man scored just before the end of the first half with a looping header after connecting with a cross from Connor Wickham. Without James McArthur and Jason Puncheon, Palace returned with Jordon Mutch and Mile Jedinak while Wickham immediately came back into the lineup following his suspension. But Palace will be without Pape Souare, who picked up a straight red card.

After a completely bungled transfer window, Emmanuel Adebayor remains with Totteham who have made it known he will never play for them again, and now has failed to report for his country during the international break.

It really has been a comedy of errors for Spurs at the forward position during the transfer window, as they could not land a true out-and-out striker while failing to offload Adebayor. Heung-min Son can play a central striker position, but is likely to be used more out wide in order to utilize him and Harry Kane at the same time. This still leaves no true striker to relieve Kane, who has yet to score in four league games. Adebayor still has a chance to be moved, with some countries still able to make transfers, for example Portugal, who's deadline day is September 22nd. With this latest incident, failing to show up to play for Togo, it will be even more difficult to imagine a club willing to take a chance and pay his hefty wages.

Aston Villa are close to signing Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor on a season-long loan, who is set to undergo a medical on Wednesday.

Villa are in dire need of a striker and Adebayor could fill in Christian Benteke's shoes. The 31-year-old Tottenham player was recently relegated to practicing with the U21s and is out of favor at Tottenham. At Villa, he would likely enjoy the duties of being the number one striker, and he will have plenty of opportunities to score with Jack Grealish and newly signed Jordan Ayew setting him up. Adebayor now makes for a high-risk, high-upside pick late in fantasy drafts.

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.
