Even though we’ve just hit the middle of March, it doesn’t stop the newspapers with their idle transfer gossip. Most rumours seem best ignored given the fact that the window isn’t open for another couple of months, but occasionally the odd story is worth commenting on.
One in particular links Jermain Defoe to Manchester City. Now the story seems to have originated in The Sun so draw your own conclusions as to the substance behind it, and it seems based around Carlos Tevez alleged intention to leave Eastlands this summer and Defoe coming in as his replacement.
The player has declared his frustration at the lack of starts given to him by Harry Redknapp this season, while Spurs fans in turn have expressed their frustration at the lack of goals supplied by the striker.
If the story does have legs you could argue that we shouldn’t sell to a Premier League rival, but if nothing else, it adds to speculation concerning JD’s future.
So do Jermain Defoe’s days at Spurs look numbered? If there is any substance to this story, should we refuse to sell to City, or is the player past his sell by date to the extent that it doesn’t matter?
