Tottenham outcast back in first-team training

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor is back training with the club's first-team squad, according to the player's Twitter account.

29-year-old Adebayor, who joined Spurs from Premier League rivals Manchester City on a permanent basis in August 2012, suffered the indignity of being sent to train with the development squad by manager Andre Villas-Boas earlier this month following an extended leave of absence.

With the Togo international's future at White Hart Lane placed in severe doubt, Adebayor has seemingly been handed a boost by having his first-team exile ended on Monday. 

"Hey guys, today was my first day back training with the first team. Good to be back and feeling good! Have a great day everyone!," the former Arsenal star said via his Twitter account.

Whether this move means Adebayor has a long-term future in North London, however, remains to be seen.

With Spanish international Roberto Soldado and Jermain Defoe currently vying for the sole striker's spot, the languid frontman had been widely linked with a potential loan switch to Championship leaders Queens Park Rangers, who are managed by former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp.

Villas-Boas' men, who currently sit third in the Premier League table after Saturday's eventful 1-1 draw against London rivals Chelsea, are in Europa League action on Thursday as they make the long journey to face troubled Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala.

They return to domestic duty on Sunday against Sam Allardyce's West Ham United.
