Adebayor is expected to join Aston Villa this week, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Adebayor has completely fallen out of favor at Tottenham, but former Spurs manager Tim Sherwood, now in charge at Villa, will bring him in to help fill the void left by Christian Benteke, who moved to Liverpool in a 32.5 million transfer. Adebayor barely played last season, stuck behind Harry Kane and Roberto Soldado on the depth chart, but he has a great opportunity to start for the Villains, who showed last season they are more interested in scoring than defending.

Adebayor said that he is happy at Tottenham and will see out the remaining year on his contract.

The striker has been linked with moves away from the club, and a potential loan deal with West Ham fell through during the last transfer window. Adebayor insisted he is happy at the club and in the Premier League.

Reports suggest that Tottenham may now be willing to fund Adebayor's salary in order to offload the striker this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Adebayor has not been the preferred option at Tottenham, but also refuses to accept wages less than his current contract. That contract runs until 2016, but Spurs may now be willing to pay a portion of that expense to ensure a deal is reached.

Adebayor's proposed loan move to West Ham fell through on deadline day, and the striker will remain at Tottenham, reports the Daily Mail.

West Ham appeared eager to complete a deal for the striker, but no agreement was reached. Adebayor has not been able to keep a regular starting spot with manager Mauricio Pochettino, and West Ham were seeking to bring the player to their squad for the remainder of the season.

Adebayor, who has been working to over come a back injury, has flown home to Togo for personal reasons and will miss Thursday's Europa League match against Besiktas, reports Sky Sports.

Adebayor hasn't played for Tottenham since early November when he started complaining of back issues. He has returned to Togo with approval of the team's management.

Adebayor was a substitute in the 2-1 loss to Stoke Sunday.

Adebayor has been struggling all season and it appears his playing time is dwindling with his poor play. Soldado and now Kane are stealing his minutes and it will only continue if he can find some productivity. Hopefully he can find his way back into the starting XI when they travel to Hull in two weeks.

Adebayor got off two shots, both on goal, but was unable to score in the 2-1 win over Aston Villa Sunday.

This was the first time Soldado and Adebayor started together and they struggled for the majority of the match not scoring until the final ten minutes. It looked as though Adebayor's goal last week would get him back on track, but keep monitoring him as he can be a dynamic goal scorer.
