Tottenham may not lose Emmanuel Adebayor for the duration of the African Nations Cup after it was reported the striker had "suspended" his international career with Togo.

Adebayor is embroiled in a dispute with the Togolese federation over match bonuses and will not represent the national team, according to a spokesman for the player quoted on South African website supersport.com.

Adebayor's public relations officer Amedodji Blaise told the site: "Togo international and captain Emmanuel Adebayor hereby brings to the notice of the general public that he is suspending his international career with the Togo team. The atmosphere currently prevailing within the Hawks will not help the team achieve its set-out objectives."
