Adebayor was widely expected to leave White Hart Lane in the summer window having been frozen out by Mauricio Pochettino, the Spurs manager, since the Argentine was appointed in May 2014.
BBC Sport confirmed on Thursday that the former Arsenal and Manchester City forward has not been included in Tottenham’s Premier League and Europa League squads, suggesting that his professional career could be coming to an end.
The report claims that West Ham were keen on a permanent transfer while Aston Villa were considering a loan deal this summer, yet his high wage demands saw both clubs pull the plug on their interest.
And his international future could now be at stake, too.
A Togo official said, “He has not given us a reason. He was in the squad but he has just not shown up,” as quoted by Sky Sports.
