Is it really that much of a ‘shock’ to see Jermain Defoe linked with Spurs when the same story was doing the rounds around 3 weeks ago?
As far as Spurs headlines are concerned, there’s not much beyond Luka Modric, but a couple of old rumours have started to gain some more momentum today and the Defoe link is just one of them.
It’s really not clear as to why this has come out again although the fee may have changed to £16m which could be good business if it ever did go through.
Elsewhere, stories suggest that the imminent arrival of Ashley Young at Old Trafford may be the catalyst for a move for Dimitar Berbatov. Once again there isn’t a lot that is new here, but with the imminent arrival of Alex McLeish at Villa Park, Young’s move could finally be sanctioned. That in turn could set off a chain of events that could see the Berbatov story settled one way or another.
