The 30-year-old striker has not featured for Spurs since their 1-0 derby defeat by Arsenal due to a hamstring problem and gash on his heel.

However, top scorer Adebayor returned to training with the squad on Tuesday and is now in line for a return against Sunderland. "It's great to see him back out there," Sherwood told the club's official website.

"We'll continue to assess him as the week progresses and hopefully he'll then be back in contention against Sunderland. He's obviously been a big miss. He's been outstanding for us."
