Emmanuel Adebayor has exiled himself to train with the youngsters at Tottenham.
In an unusual move the controversial striker — who has been told he has no future at the club — has turned down the chance to train with the first team and opted to join the Under 21s instead.
It is normally managers who expel their troublesome players to train with the kids, but Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said he would allow Adebayor to take part in sessions with the senior squad, only to have the offer declined.
The 31-year-old still has a year left on his £100,000-per-week deal and, even though he was warned by Pochettino at the end of last season that he was no longer in his plans, still would not leave the club.
