It looks as though Emmanuel Adebayor’s decision to come out of international retirement is about to be confirmed with reports that the player is happy to discuss a comeback with Togolese officials.
Ade hasn’t played for his country since the fatal attack on the country’s team bus in 2008 but he could re-appear as early as next week, in Togo’s game with Guinea Bissau.
‘I am happy to say that I am returning for Togo and will avail myself for next week’s game,’ he told the BBC.
‘Now that I am returning to the team it is up to the coach to decide whether he wants to play me or not.
‘I am returning to the team as a member of the squad and I don’t expect any special treatment. I will be treated as any other player in the team.’
This may not be major news from a Spurs point of view, depending on how long we can expect to enjoy the player’s services but it could be seen as another sign that Ade is much happier with life now he is at the Lane. Whether that happiness extends to a permanent deal however, remains to be seen.
