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.
Coach Mauricio Pochettino had previously said he had no plans to include the striker in his squad this season.
Adebayor has been training with Tottenham's Under-21s since the transfer window closed.
We can confirm that we've reached a mutual agreement with @e_adebayor which will see him released from his contract with the Club.
Don't understand Pochettino's decision - why would he trade down?
Welcome Mauricio Pochettino! I hope I get to see one of his Spurs teams play but I can’t get to WHL til November so it’s probably 50/50.
Mauricio Pochettino is the new manager of Spurs. Needed to get that tweet out quickly before they fire him.
On a serious note, I like Pochettino's style of play. Could be a really good appointment if he's given time, support and a say in transfers.
This is a Club with tremendous history and prestige and I am honoured to have been given this opportunity to be its Head Coach.
There is an abundance of top-class talent at the Club and I am looking forward to starting work with the squad.
Tottenham Hotspur has a huge following across the world and I have great admiration for the passion the fans show for this team. We are determined to give the supporters the kind of attacking football and success that we are all looking to achieve.
Southampton have accepted that manager Mauricio Pochettino will leave the club to join Premier League rivals Spurs.

I want to say that I still have one more year on my contract.
It is only normal that these rumours will start cropping up. We know the rules with how these things happen in England.
We (he and Southampton) will sit down and we will talk. This is the end of a five-year project, we have achieved what we wanted from this project and now a new project has to start.
I have said that this club now deserves to be in a new project, the board has to decide how that happens, two years, three years or four years - I just want to sit down and talk and we will see what happens.

Charges have been dropped against three football fans who were facing prosecution for using the word "Yid".
Gary Whybrow, Sam Parsons and Peter Ditchman were all hauled before magistrates after allegedly using the language at Tottenham Hotspur matches last autumn.
Today the Crown Prosecution Service said the words could not legally be counted as "threatening, abusive or insulting" in the circumstances.
"In considering whether a criminal offence could be proved we have to look objectively at the words used, and the context in which they were used.
As part of the review, the context of the use of the words alleged in this case was reconsidered, and we have decided that, although the same words used in other contexts could in theory satisfy the criteria for 'threatening, abusive or insulting', it is unlikely that a court would find that they were in the context of the three particular cases in question."
Police had previously warned football fans not to use the word, which is used to refer to Tottenham Hotspur fans and is regularly used in football chants.
