Boss Andre Villas-Boas has no plans to loan out striker.
Andre Villas-Boas says Emmanuel Adebayor could return to the Tottenham first team after the Togo striker joined training for the first time on Monday.
The former Arsenal and Man City forward last played for Spurs in pre-season but returned to his native Togo from the club’s trip to Hong Kong following the death of his brother.
Villas-Boas said earlier this month the former Arsenal forward would train with the development squad on his return.
The Portuguese also admitted Adebayor had rejected the chance to leave White Hart Lane, where he reportedly earns over £120,000-a-week, this summer.
Adebayor, 29, confirmed on twitter on Monday that he had rejoined first team training:
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!

And when asked if there were any plans to send the striker on loan, Villas-Boas replied:
“At the moment he’s come back into the team to train, which he hasn’t done since the Hong Kong trip, so at the moment we are monitoring how the player develops his fitness and challenges for his place in the team. We’re not considering anything.”
