Harry Redknapp will wait on the fitness of three players ahead of Sunday's clash at Newcastle.

Emmanuel Adebayor (hamstring), Sandro (calf) and Aaron Lennon (groin) are all rated 50-50 as we return to Premier League action at St James Park.

Vedran Corluka (foot) and Niko Kranjcar (thigh) are ruled out after picking up injuries in Croatia's win against Latvia on Tuesday night.

"Two or three of the lads will train with the medical staff and we'll have to wait and see how they are," reported Harry at Spurs Lodge on Friday.

"Adebayor had a hamstring problem, Sandro had a calf strain, Corluka's come back with a foot injury and Niko has tore a thigh muscle.

"Aaron has had a groin strain for four or five weeks now and is struggling a little, but he said he felt better yesterday (Thursday) and we'll see how he gets on."

Niko and Vedran join longer-term injuries Michael Dawson (Achilles), William Gallas (calf) and Tom Huddlestone (ankle) on the sidelines.

Better news sees Steven Pienaar and Danny Rose back in training after injury.
