Andre Villas-Boas has revealed that Emmanuel Adebayor has been ordered to train with Tottenham's reserves.

The 29-year-old, who scored five goals in 24 Premier League appearances last season, is currently in Togo for personal reasons.

Adebayor has yet to feature for Tottenham this season and is currently behind Roberto Soldado and Jermain Defoe in the club's striking options.

"At the moment Ade is not with us, because we have granted him authorisation to stay up until Monday in his country for personal reasons, so he's not going to be involved against Norwich [on Saturday]," Villas-Boas told reporters.

"Up to when I find it appropriate, he will train with the development team."
