Tottenham forward Emmanuel Adebayor has reversed his decision not to represent Togo at January’s Africa Cup of Nations, leaving Spurs with Jermain Defoe as their only recognised striker.

The 28-year-old initially planned to remain with his club because of a row over team security and unpaid bonuses.

But he will now go to the tournament in South Africa, which starts on 19 January, and may miss six Spurs games.

It is undecided whether he will be available for Saturday’s match at QPR.

Adebayor met up with the Togo squad in Ghana for their pre-tournament training camp, but Tottenham are hopeful he can fly back for the trip to Loftus Road before heading off again.
