Jermain Defoe scores fine solo goal to join Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Man Utd royalty in Premier League 150 club

Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe has just become the eighth player to score 150 Premier League goals.

Former West Ham, Tottenham Hotspur and Portsmouth striker Defoe reached the landmark by scoring a fine solo goal against Hull City in what could prove to be a key relegation battle.

Defoe now finds himself in a pretty exclusive club, alongside Premier League royalty, including legends of Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United.

Ex-England international Defoe started the day tied with retired forward Les Ferdinand on 149 Premier League goals, but he is now tied with Michael Owen.

Defoe needs another 14 Prem goals to move ahead of Liverpool hero Robbie Fowler and take sixth place on the list of all-time Prem scorers.
