London:

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas revealed on Thursday that he has asked Togolese striker Emmanuel Adebayor to train with the Premier League club's reserve team.

The 29-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Spurs following the arrival of Roberto Soldado from Valencia and was recently granted leave to return to Togo after the death of his brother, Peter.

Adebayor is due to return to London on Monday and Villas-Boas says that when he does, he will have to train with the club's second-string players.

"At the moment Ade is not with us, because we have granted him authorisation to stay up until Monday in his country for personal reasons, so he's not going to be involved against Norwich (on Saturday)," Villas-Boas said.

"Up to when I find it appropriate, he will train with the development team."
