The Mirror says Adebayor's preparations for Spursâ€™ showdown with Newcastle this weekend have been hit by his late flight back from the Africa Cup of Nations.
The strikerâ€™s Togo side got knocked out by Burkina Faso on Sunday night, at the quarter-final stage.
Adebayor and his team-mates, however, were stuck at their South Africa hotel until Wednesday.
It is understood many of the players decided against taking a plane laid on for them by the Togo Federation on Monday and instead wanted to travel with Adebayor.
With a huge game at home to the resurgent Magpies kicking off at 12.45pm on Saturday and Jermain Defoe, Spurs' only other senior striker, injured, Adebayor is needed by the north Londoners.
