Defoe still an option?

Defoe still an option?

Today's Independent claim that Pompey could still be in the running for Spurs striker Jermain Defoe - who has been a long-term target of Harry Redknapp's. Villa are also keen admirers of his...

The Spurs striker was apparently told yesterday by Juande Ramos that he can leave White Hart Lane and the thought is that we had made a loan enquiry about him, which if true was understandably rejected as Spurs want to sell rather than loan.

Defoe is said to be one of several players that Spurs are trying to offload this month, but with it always said that he would like to move to one of the 'big 4' clubs not to mention the fact that we cannot afford - or apparently cannot - the £10m asking price it seems more and more likely that such a deal will not happen?

The England man himself is insisting that he does not want to go and does want to sign a new contract, so this saga appears that it will have some time to run yet...

A succession of knowledgable Spurs managers have not rated this bench warmer so why should we consider him to be the holy grail of strikers? I can't be the only one who see's him as an expensive luxury? Peter Crouch is worth TWO defoes.

£10m is too much isnt it, but that is the kind of price we will need to play for a goalscorer... as much as i have campagined for defoe and thought he would sign - rumours on the pompey pages are that he was 'spotted with 'arry yesterday' - i cant see it now and probably would prefer crouchy to come back, but again we couldnt afford him! other rumours on the pompey pages are that lita is having a medical this week?

The Defoe saga has been going on for so long now... infact we should ban all defoe talk (only joking). Being serious though it does concern me that he is happy to play this role as rolling sub.... I would rather have some like crouch (cant believe I am saying this) that really wants to score goals and play games.

Defoe is much in the same bracket as Yakubu, you know he won't track back and put in the work of a Benjani, but he knows where the goal is
