Spurs and Pompey agree Defoe fee

Spurs and Pompey agree Defoe fee

Pompey have had an offer accepted for Jermaine Defoe by Tottenham. Fact.

The press association have reported that a fee has been agreed, and now its up to Defoe to agree terms and agree to come to the South Coast.

The fee is thought to be in the region of £9m, this is alledgedly to be offset by the sale of Benjani to Man City, this rumour first surfaced during last nights defeat to Man United, and will not go down well with Pompey fans.

To bear a comparison for Pompey fans, remember the disgust of Newcastle fans when Andy Cole departed for Man U?
Their disgust was soon tempered by the new partnership of Les Ferdinand and Alan Shearer, who is to say that Defoe cannot be the man to bring us European football, heroes come, heroes go, new heroes will always turn up.

yep being left out of the england squad whilst other pompey players got picked seems to have swayed Defoe, although according to reports from france he is apparently still waiting for a last minute "big club" to come in for him. so we even now are last minute .com for him.

some weeks back russ and i were discussing that Nugent would probably benefit from playing up alongside an out of out striker, which is why until spurs manager oneday left "lazy" JD out i thought crouch would be the one. do you think Defoe can play as a team player will he lay the ball off?

Match highlights - Hartlepool 0-2 Pompey

The slim chances of a top 3 finish ended, despite a win at Hartlepool. Wins for Accrington, Oxford and Bristol Rovers meant Pompey cannot finish higher than our current 5th place.
