Sky Report Newcastle Move For Jermain Defoe
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.
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.
