Portsmouth In For £9M Defoe


News is breaking that a January target for Newcastle, Jermaine Defoe of Tottenham Hotspur, may be moving to Portsmouth for £9M.

Jermaine Defoe – £9M to Portsmouth?

Sky Sports is reporting that Portsmouth have agreed a fee of £9M for the Tottenham striker, and there is a move to get him through the window before midnight tonight.

Where this leaves Newcastle on Defoe we don’t know, but when Keegan arrived it was widely reported the three players he wanted were Jermaine Defoe, Jonathan Woodgate and David Bentley.

Benjani is also involved in this move, as Manchester City have moved in for him with a bid of £6.5M, and it may be that Defoe will only move if Benjani moves to City.  Reports are that Redknapp and Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie spent most of Wednesday trying to agree a fee with Tottenham.

But Defoe has also been a long term target at Aston Villa, and Martin O’Neil is said to be following the moves closely, and may yet try to take Jermaine to Villa.

Former West Ham striker Defoe has scored 43 goals in 137 appearances for Spurs and formerly played 93 times for West Ham and scored 29 goals.

Defoe was also on loan at Bournemouth from 2000-2001 where he played 29 times and scored 18 goals.

However, Defoe now finds himself behind Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane at Spurs, with little chance to impress new England boss Fabio Cappello.

Comments welcome.

    9mil for defoe and he has months on his contract, then nzogbia would cost nearer to 20mil because he has 5 years on his contract and is a key member to our squad. he isnt leaving

    ToonKing, we’ve been told for days nothing will happen. You’re only disappointed because you’ve allowed yourself to be.

    EDIT – If anything we should be pleased with the day’s work with the acquisition of the young kiddy from Atalanta. Bit of a bonus.

    Keegan WILL buy if they are the right players – If not then we should be pleased he’s not jumping with two feet and panic buying! Put all you faith in KK – Would be nice though wouldn’t it, a nice big jucie signing – PANDEV or BERBATOV!!!

    Can’t see why we need Defoe with two other “littlies” in the squad (on the assumption that Owen and Martins stay, and that Owen regains some form)

    Yeah, I’m with you Ian. Defoe won’t offer anything we haven’t already got.

    I am stupidly still hopeful that the signing that Keegan said may make us all go “Wow” will still go through. Unlikely, though. Will be disappointed tomorrow.
