Jermian Defoe To Villa?

Jermian Defoe To Villa?

The rumour mill for January transfer activities seems to get earlier and earlier each season. This time Villa are once again being linked to England and Spurs striker Jermain Defoe.

Reports at the end of the summer transfer window linked us to Defoe but they proved unfounded or at least the money wasn't yet there following the takeover situation.

This time both the News of the World and The Mail on Sunday are linking Martin O'Neill to a £7million for the Tottenham star who we'll be able to get a good look at, probably sitting on the bench where he appears to spend most of his time under Martin Jol, next weekend as they visit Villa Park on Saturday.

Great move for the club and for the player , he needs regular games to enhance his england credentials and for the club you know he will get goals !

agreed, could be a top player, with spurs lack of goals I can't understand why they aren't using him, he seems to have pace a-plenty.

I'd love to get Defoe. Has always scored goals whenever he's been given a proper chance. Can't understand why he isn't starting for Spurs at the moment. 7 million would be good business IMO

that would be a great signing and he must be getting fed up at spurs.

He doesn't spend most of the time on the bench!! Are you working for NoTW!? Poor article and ****e rumours!
its quiet at the lib

Defoe would only leave to enhance his career not take a few steps back, villa to small a club for him before you villians start getting excited, and 7m gotta be joke worth at least double that

Leaving Spurs (small team) to join Villa (big team - potentially massive team) would certainly enhance his career . He'd score 20+ each season in claret n blue. Great article! Good business! SOTC
