We’ve seen the rumours linking Jermain Defoe with a move away from Spurs before but while the stories surrounding a move to Arsenal in the summer seemed unlikely, could today’s Liverpool link be more plausible?
The story seems to have broken in The Daily Mirror and may just have come from adding up a sequence of possible events: JD has a new agent with supposed ties to Liverpool who in turn might be looking to offload Andy Carroll while needing to cover the loss of Luis Suarez.
That’s how Harry sees it anyway,
“A new agent comes in and the boy is not playing – I can understand it,” Harry said.
“Our chairman Daniel Levy spoke to his agent who said Jermain is not happy because he wants to play and he has got a few clubs in for him.
“That is how agents work. This is the time of the year where they make their money by trying to shift players. They want to do a deal. They have got to sell somebody. He is not moving anywhere though.”
Defoe will have been disappointed at being dropped after scoring the winner at West Brom but it looks as if he will remain part of Spurs’ strike force until the end of the season at least.
