Spurs striker Emmanuel Adebayor has been released from his contract with the club.

Tottenham's official Twitter account linked to a statement that said they had reached a mutual agreement to release him before the contract had run its course.

Adebayor has been training with Tottenham's Under-21s since the transfer window closed.
