Defoe Dumps Spurs For Toronto

Tottenham and England striker Jermain Defoe has agreed to join Major League Soccer side Toronto FC for £6m.
The 31-year-old will join the Canadian side on 28 February and will be eligible to play for Spurs until then.
The former West Ham man has agreed a four-year deal, worth £68,000 per week, potentially rising to £90,000.
Defoe, who has played more than 250 games for Spurs, said: “Everybody knows how much this club means to me, I will play my heart out until my last kick”.
Speculation grew over Defoe’s future this season when he was often used as a substitute by former Spurs’ manager Andre Villas-Boas, with summer signing Roberto Soldado preferred as a lone striker.
He is the second-top scorer in the Europa League with seven of his nine goals this season coming in the competition, but his position on the bench has not changed since the appointment of Tim Sherwood, with Emmanuel Adebayor used as Soldado’s strike partner.
