Tottenham Hotspur latest: Including Adebayor, Callejon, and Europa League options

Adebayor And Saha V Arsenal

News, views, and rumours relating to Tottenham Hotspur over the last 24 hours.

There could be bad news for Tottenham on the horizon, with Togo making another attempt to convince Emmanuel Adebayor to play at the African Nations Cup. Adebayor scored the goal to help them qualify back in October, but promptly quit the international scene after a pay dispute. Togo manager Didier Six told the BBC: "I am doing everything I can to get him to come back to us. I  will put all my strength to get him to change his mind but he has the last word." 

If Adebayor does change his mind, he will miss up to six weeks of action with Spurs, but it could also affect his chances at the club. AVB's hand would be forced to sign a new striker, and Adebayor may return to find himself third choice at a club he was first choice at last season. He is currently awaiting diagnosis on an ankle injury sustained against Swansea on Sunday.

One striker Tottenham are interested in is Real Madrid forward Jose Callejon. The 25-year-old has failed to hold down a first team place this season and reports have claimed the striker is open to a move. He has a 16.3 million buyout clause but may be available for less. Liverpool and Udinese are among clubs also interested in the attacker.

Andre Villas-Boas has held a meeting with Tottenham's defenders to address the leaking of late goals. If the matches lasted 80 minutes, figures show that Spurs would be top of the league. William Gallas told TalkSport the players and manager had a meeting on the subject, with panicking cited as one of the problems.

The Europa League draw takes place tomorrow, and Tottenham will find out who will be their opponents in the last 32. Spurs are unseeded and could face tricky ties against the likes of Benfica or Atletico Madrid.

The full list of teams Spurs could be drawn against is here: Viktoria Plzen, Fenerbahçe, Girondins de Bordeaux, Steaua Bucuresti, Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, Genk, Rubin Kazan, Lyon, Lazio, Metalist Kharkiv, Hannover 96, CFR Cluj, Olympiakos

Fans have been reacting to seeing Sol Campbell lecture Theo Walcott on contracts. Campbell famously walked out on Spurs on a free to Arsenal, earning him the nickname Judas among the club's support.
