Jermain Defoe Link Hots Up
Rumours are abound that Jermain Defoe's girlfriend has been viewing properties in the Stratford Upon Avon district of Worcestershire. If true then surely that shows that the Spurs striker could well be on his way to Villa Park? I must add this is only a rumour, as mentioned on our rumour thread but you never know. Another there says that the deal is all but done bar the shouting and personal terms being agreed. Again, really not sure about that, and especially now it appears there is a hold up over a dispute between Defoe and his agent.
According to today's Express and Star, there is an argument between the agent he is contracted to (Skye Andrew) and the agency Defoe says he is with (SEN)
The paper say 'The dispute is believed to centre around a difference of opinion between the player and agent on Defoe’s future.' and claim that no one else can negotiate on the players behalf until 2009.
Villa have refused to comment on reports that we have bid £7million for him.
Defoe, what do you reckon? Given the chances I think he could be lethal for us and surely he has a massive point to prove if he does move? Especially as we have a new England boss who he will want to impress and he can't do that on the Spurs bench can he? He could help fire into Europe, remember we are only 3 points off 4th place, if we bring in 3-4 quality players, who knows what could happen?!?
