Emmanuel Adebayor could be set for a new contract at Tottenham after being welcomed back into the first-team fold by Tim Sherwood, according to reports from The Mirror.

The controversial Togolese forward found himself axed from Spurs’ squad under former manager Andre Villas-Boas, who had grown frustrated with his attitude and lack of work ethic.

Adebayor’s exodus was rumoured to have contributed to the Portuguese coach’s exit, with chairman Daniel levy frustrated that one of the side’s highest earners was not being utilised.

Since Sherwood’s reign at the helm of the White Hart Lane outfit has begun, the former Manchester City, Arsenal and Real Madrid front-man has been reinstated into the first-team, netting three goals in three outings.

This form has reportedly led to talk of a fresh contract for the 29-year-old, with Levy concerned that he could lose the striker for free as he enters the final 18 months of his deal.

Adebayor was suspected to be close to leaving Tottenham for Besiktas over the summer, but the Turkish giants’ inability to fund a big money move saw the switch called off.
