Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas admits Emmanuel Adebayor won't be allowed to train with his first team squad.

AVB didn't go into reasons why this morning, but confirmed the club had granted the Togolese leave.

Villas-Boas said: "At the moment he's not with us. We have granted him authorisation to stay until Monday in his country for personal reasons. He won't be involved against Norwich. Up until I find it appropriate, he will train with the development team."
