Despite a change of manager at Spurs it could be another frustrating year on the sidelines for Jermain Defoe, particularly if AVB does back up the rumours and sign two new strikers before the start of the season.
JD has spent much of the last two years in and out of the side and there have been constant rumours of a move away during that time.
According to the media last week – AVB had told Defoe that he must stay at the club but that wouldn’t necessarily suggest he is first choice. In any event, it hasn’t stopped the press from linking the striker with other clubs including QPR and Reading.
So what’s best for all concerned – moving on or staying at Spurs with the possibility of another ‘bit part’ role for 2012-13?
