According to this source, a long-term under-performer will be offered in exchange for Pompey’s feared predator, will they accept?

Given the financial uncertainty at the south coast club, one would wonder whether Aaron Lennon would accept the idea of a move to Fratton Park. If he did and Portsmouth agree the deal, then Harry will have done a very good bit of business. Many Spurs fans believe they should never have sold Defoe, although he was only used sparingly towards the end of this White Hart Lane days due to Keane/Berbatov partnership in his way. I can see JD becoming a fantastic acquisition if he does make a return to the club where he managed 64 goals in 110 starts (even if you add the 50+ appearances from the bench he still had a very healthy strike rate at the club).
