Adebayor, 31, is out of favour under Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, and whilst many had expected him to leave this summer, the Togolese forward remains at White Hart Lane.
However, there is interest in his signature. The Mirror report that West Ham were hoping to land Adebayor on loan in a bid to solve their striking injury crisis.
It's also added that Adebayor had told West Ham he wanted to join the club before Tuesday's transfer deadline, but has now stalled over a move to Upton Park.
That indecision from Adebayor has allegedly frustrated Hammers boss Slaven Bilic, who is now looking towards other targets before the transfer window closes.
Spurs now must be worried that they will be stuck with Adebayor and his alleged £100,000-a-week wages, despite clearly having no future under Pochettino.
Adebayor doesn't even have a squad number this season, and has been sent to train with the club's Under-21 side - but his decision to stall over a move to West Ham now means he could remain at White Hart Lane for the foreseeable future, which would no doubt anger Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who is desperate to get him off the books.
