He had been given time to visit Ghana for personal reasons. But the striker and outcast Benoit Assou-Ekotto lead a lengthy list of players boss Mauricio Pochettino would like to offload.
However, Adebayor’s £100,000-per-week wages are likely to be a stumbling block for finding any permanent takers, so a loan move is believed to be a more possible outcome.
Defender Assou-Ekotto, who also cuts a very infrequent figure at the club’s training ground is expected to finally move on, whilst manager Mauricio Pochettino is hoping to use midfielder Moussa Dembele as a makeweight in a deal to sign Aston Villa’s Fabian Delph.
But Stoke boss Mark Hughes is also keen on bringing the Belgian international to the Britannia Stadium.
