Spurs Desperate For Ade's Return

Emmanuel Adebayor left the African Cup of Nations with his reputation intact, after some solid showings for Togo.

And he must be pleased to know he will be the centre of attention when he gets back to London.

Tottenham Hotspur have a striker crisis, having failed to land Leandro Damiao from Internacional on transfer deadline day.

Spurs’ England striker, Jermain Defoe continues to recuperate from injury, and is only expected back in action in three weeks’ time.

Defoe’s misfortune is Ade’s gain, and the lanky former Arsenal and Manchester City is guaranteed a place in the starting line-up at White Hart Lane upon his return.

In fact, Spurs are so desperate for their target-man to get home that they are working hard to facilitate his quickest possible route to Heathrow.

The idea is for Ade to hit the ground running, when fourth-placed Spurs taken on suddenly resurgent Newcastle on Saturday.

"We are trying to establish the best flight connections for him," coach Andre Villas-Boas said of Ade on Thursday.

"He will be selected for sure."
