Whether you view it with sweetness or sourness, Jermain Defoe is looking more and more likely to playing his football at White Hart Lane again this season. Defoe, who divides opinion amongst the Spurs fan-base (like many in a lilywhite shirt), is set to leave MLS club Toronto FC this transfer window, after falling out of favour in Canada. Loved and unloved Despite criticism, Defoe is generally held in good regard by fans of our club. And after the shortcomings of Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor, you could argue that the witch-hunt against him during the end of his Spurs career was slightly harsh. After a blistering start in the MLS for Toronto, injuries and inconsistent form has blighted his ‘American Dream’. This has led to Defoe feeling unwanted, especially after comments made by Toronto Chairman Tim Leiwieke last September, who questioned the striker’s commitment, saying: “If you don’t want to be here, get the hell out of our way!” Ouch. He’ll be wearing blue and white So what are the details of his transfer and where will he fit in? Well, the twist of the tale is that Leicester City are favourites to sign Defoe this January, as Nigel Pearson aims to bolster his attacking line-up in his attempts to beat the drop. If Defoe completes his switch to the King Power stadium early this window, he could be in line to face ourselves at White Hart Lane as early as the 24th of January, that’s if we beat Burnley in our FA Cup reply next Wednesday. In the event of an upset and we crash out to Dyche’s Clarets, a Leicester-bound Defoe could be set for an emotional return to the Lane next on March 21st, when we face the Foxes at home in the league.
