Sky Report Newcastle Move For Jermain Defoe

7 years ago

Sky Sports are reporting that Newcastle United are interested in bringing Jermain Defoe to St.James’ Park.

The ex-Spurs striker moved to Toronto FC and the MLS only in February, in a move that most saw as the forward going into semi-retirement and giving up on football ambitions.

However, Sky are reporting that Defoe may be interested in returning to the Premier League.

Defoe turns 32 in October and was sold for £6m in that move to Canada six months ago, the player having been regularly (amongst numerous others) linked to Newcastle over a number of years as he struggled for a regular start at Tottenham.

The forward has found the lower standard of MLS football/soccer to his liking with 11 goals in 16 matches, in contrast to only 1 in 14 games for Tottenham in the first half of last season, though only 3 of those Spurs matches saw him in the starting eleven.
