England international currently limited to subs role at Spurs.
Major League Soccer’s Toronto FC have offered out-of-favour Tottenham Hotspur striker Jermain Defoe a lucrative big-money deal to quit the north London club and move to the United States when the winter transfer window opens again for business in the new year, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
Toronto, who are currently being managed by former Spurs defender Ryan Nelsen, have put an eye-catching contract on the table worth a staggering £5m per year, which works out at £90,o00 per week, to entice the England international to leave White Hart Lane at the turn of the year.
However, Defoe is said to still be undecided about whether or not to accept Toronto’s offer, especially as this seasons ends with the World Cup finals in Brazil, which the striker fears he will miss out on should he move to the MLS in January.
Meanwhile, it is also understood that Defoe has been offered the chance to team up once again with former manager Harry Redknapp, with the ex-Spurs boss now in charge of Championship high-flyers Queens Park Rangers.
Redknapp wants the 31-year-old to move across the capital to Loftus Road in the new year in order to aid the west London club’s bid to make an immediate return to the Premier League this season.
