Tottenham caretaker boss Tim Sherwood has called up Emmanuel Adebayor for their Capital One Cup tie with West Ham United.

It is understood the striker is in the squad for Wednesday's Capital One Cup quarter-final against West Ham, says the Daily Mail.

It is a significant call from Sherwood given predecessor Andre Villas-Boas's fractious relationship with Adebayor, who has made just one substitute appearance all season in the 6-0 defeat at Manchester City.
