Word on the street is that Defoe is officially for sale.
So much for the I'm gonna roll up my sleeves and fight spiel. But hey, would you blame him?
The 25 year old sometime part time England squad striker has had a value placed upon him by Tottenham of £14 million.
Two Premiership Clubs have shown what is perceived to be genuine interest. One of whom is thought to be Portsmouth. No surprise there of course with old Redschnapps having been an admirer of Defoe since their West Ham days.
If any of this is true then we can expect a last flurry of 'Defoe For Tayor Plus Wonga Swap' stories before the old transer window bangs shut.
And what of Defoe?
Apparently weighing up his options.
He signed a four and a half year contact in April 2005. Which does mean that one eye has to be 'on the meter' so as to speak.
Wouldn't want the little bar steward sloping off on a Bosman come the new year... would we?
