This source says the deal is done and Jermain Defoe is on his way back to White Hart Lane!
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp sealed the transfer of Portsmouth striker Jermain Defoe for £15.75million in the early hours of this morning.
The England striker was due at White Hart Lane to undergo a medical before completing his switch back to the club that sold him to Portsmouth a year ago.
The Spurs boss insisted there are no dirty tricks behind the deal – and their attempts to sign Middlesbrough and England winger Stewart Downing.
As revealed in Sportsmail yesterday, the north London club secured the deal for the 26-year-old after Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie lashed out the transfer fee. (Daily Mail)
Well this source suggests the deal is done, and who am I to argue! It has seemed like it was on the cards for some time, even when Redknapp went on record and stated the fee that another club had put in for Defoe was too rich for him it still felt like a deal to bring the former Spurs man back to the club would be done sooner rather than later. Are Tottenham fans happy about the return of the England international?
