Manchester City: Adebayor coming home
"He is on his way back from Angola but we are not sure exactly where his flight is headed," City spokesman Simon Heggie said.
"The lines of communication between the club and Emmanuel have been open all day, we have spoken to his advisors and his girlfriend and he is coming home."
Togo's football federation is consulting its players before deciding whether to pull out of the tournament.
Two members of the delegation have died as well as the driver of their coach after Friday's attack in the Cabinda region of host nation Angola.
Aston Villa midfielder Moustapha Salifou, a tenacious 26-year-old midfielder who has made 13 appearances for the side since joining them in August 2007, described the attack in graphic detail on Aston Villa's website.
"To be honest, I can't sum up how I feel at this moment. My parents keep calling me from Togo every 30 minutes just to make sure I am okay and to see how things are going here," he said.
"But we have made our decision as players. We can't play in these circumstances and we want to leave for home today."
Salifou said gunmen had opened fire on the bus 15 minutes after it crossed into Angola from Congo.
"The driver of the coach was shot almost immediately and died instantly, so we were just stopped on the road with nowhere to go.
"Our security people saved us. They were in two separate cars, about 10 of them in total and they returned fire.
"The shooting lasted for half an hour and I could hear the bullets whistling past me. It was like a movie.
"I know I am really lucky. I was in the back of the coach with Emmanuel Adebayor and one of the goalkeepers. A defender who was sat in front of me took two shots in the back.
"The goalkeeper, Obilale Dodo, one of my best friends, was shot in the chest and stomach area and he has been flown to South Africa to undergo an operation to save his life.
"It was horrific. Everybody was crying. I couldn't stay in control myself and I cried when I saw the injuries to my friend.
"I don't know how anyone could do this. We were looking forward to playing football and to being together as a team. None of us can play football now."
In Italy, Serie A club Udinese have demanded the return of Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah from Angola.
"Udinese have asked the Ghana Federation and FIFA for the immediate return of our player," a club statement said.
The English FA said in a statement it had been in continual contact with all of the English clubs who have players at the tournament.
"We are also working closely with, and being helpfully supported by the Premier League and League Managers Association.
"All of English football would like to offer our sincere condolences to everyone connected with the Togalese squad, especially to the families of those who have been tragically killed or have been injured.
"We will do all we can to ensure the welfare and safety of all Premier League players in Angola representing their countries."
