Tottenham striker could be on the move in January

Published 1 Comments

Emmanuel Adebayor returned to training with Tottenham yesterday for the first time - and his manager Andre Villas-Boas is under pressure to play him in order to boost his value ahead of the January transfer window, according to the Mirror.

The Togolese striker was granted compassionate leave following his brother's death before the start of the 2013/14 season, but while the player himself insists he was never going to leave north London, AVB revealed last month that he had offers on the table. Besiktas, Schalke and QPR were believed to be amongst his suitors.

Rumours of a bust-up between Villas-Boas and the 29-year-old have been rife after the Spurs boss confirmed he was due to train away from the first team.

Now the Mirror report that the Portuguese boss is under pressure to integrate Adebayor into his first team plans in order to protect his value so he can be sold in January.

Adebayor, who is believed to be the club's top earner on around £170,000-per-week, tweeted yesterday that he was back with the Tottenham first team.

"Hey guys, today was my first day back training with the first team," he said. "Good to be back and feeling good! Have a great day everyone!"
