Emmanuel Adebayor has flown out to Ghana to meet up with Togo’s national squad ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations.
The move represents a u-turn for the Tottenham forward after threatening not to play for his country amid a row over team security and unpaid bonuses.
Manager Didier Six spoke out in December to try and change Adebayor’s mind, adding that his involvement in the tournament is crucial to Togo’s aspirations.
“Of course we’re in the African Nations Cup with Adebayor, we will be together in South Africa,” Ameyi Gabriel, the president of the Togo Football Federation told Radio Algeria International.
“It is very important to have him there because he is our player and captain of the team.”
Adebayor could miss up to four matches for Tottenham if Togo progress to the final of the competition – leaving Jermain Defoe as Andre Villas-Boas’ only recognised first-team striker.
Togo have been grouped with Ivory Coast, Tunisia and Algeria in Group D.
