Emmanuel Adebayor faces an uncertain future after he was left out of the Tottenham squad for the Premier League and UEFA Europa League this season.
The 31-year-old Togo striker has fallen out of favour at White Hart Lane, but remains at the club following the transfer window shutting on Tuesday.

That means Adebayor – who posted on his Facebook page back in May that he had considered suicide over family issues – looks set to run down the final year of a lucrative contract at Tottenham, with Mauricio Pochettino sending out a clear message by omitting him from his squad of players to compete domestically and in Europe.
Adebayor last turned out for Spurs in the 1-0 home defeat against Manchester City in May.
