Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that England striker Jermain Defoe is to move to Canadian side Toronto FC at the end of February in a deal worth about £6million, ending his second stint at the club.
Though Defoe averaged a goal every three games during his time at Spurs, he is yet to score in 12 Premier League appearances this season – and has been reduced to a bit-part role as Andre Villas-Boas and now Tim Sherwood attempt to work out the best system for Spurs’ host of talented new signings.
Defoe won’t have much time to rest or acclimatise to his new surroundings; the new MLS season starts in mid-March, with his debut likely to be in Toronto’s opening league game against Seattle Sounders on March 16th.
Whether he will have the impact that previous Premier League players have had on the other side of the Atlantic is open to question. Defoe has never been the goalscorer Henry was and doesn’t have as rounded a game as Beckham, but he should stand out in a side far weaker than the likes of LA Galaxy and the New York Red Bulls, and continue scoring goals for a few years yet.Subscribe to Football Transfers by Email

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham star Gareth Bale is in turmoil after Spurs rejected a world-record bid of £82million from Spanish giants Real Madrid. Bale’s future at White Hart Lane has been in doubt all summer.
Real have made Bale their main transfer target this summer and if reports are to be believed then Los Blancos could return with an improved offer for one of the Premier League’s leading lights. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy seems determined to hold onto his clubs star player, but Bale could now hand in a transfer request, which may force Tottenham’s hand.Subscribe to Football Transfers by Email

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed that the club are still in talks with Valencia about the prospective signing of Spanish international striker Roberto Soldado. Los Ches could be set to stand firm of their £25.8million valuation of the striker.
Any deal for Soldado is unlikely to be financed by the sale of star player Gareth Bale. The Welsh international had been linked with a big money move to Real Madrid in the Spanish press.
However, Tottenham are now set to hold talks with Bale about extending his current contract. Manchester United were also believed to be interested in signing Bale.Subscribe to Football Transfers by Email

Tottenham star Gareth Bale is being heavily linked with a £69million move to Real Madrid. Reports emanating from Spain suggest that the Welsh star has handed in a transfer request and agreed terms with Los Blancos.
The Wales international was outstanding last season for Spurs and his performances attracted the interest of Real. Tottenham have stated that Bale is not currently for sale, but an offer of £60million may be too goods to refuse.
Meanwhile, Spurs have been told that they will have to meet Valencia striker Roberto Soldado’s buy-out fee of £25.8million if Spurs are going to sign the Spanish international.Subscribe to Football Transfers by Email

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has revealed that Spurs are in interested in signing Valencia’s prolific striker Roberto Soldado. The Spaniard had been linked with a move to White Hart Lane, but the Portuguese boss has now confirmed the clubs interest in the 28-year-old.
The Spain international has a minimum fee release clause of £25.8million in his contract and Spurs would have to break their club record to sign the striker.

Tottenham have agreed a fee of £6million with Eredivisie side FC Twente for Belgium international winger Nacer Chadli. The 23-year-old is highly-rated star impressed for Twente last season and earned rave reviews.
He is now expected in London to have a medical and to discuss personal terms. Spurs already have two Belgium internationals in their squad in the shape of Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele.
Meanwhile, West Ham are being linked with signing their former-midfielder Scott Parker from Spurs. The Irons co-owner David Sullivan has revealed that he love to sign the England international.Subscribe to Football Transfers by Email

Tottenham are targeting Valencia star Roberto Soldado in their search for a new striker, according to the Daily Mail. Spurs rate the 28-year-old in the £18million bracket, while Los Ches value him closer to £24million.
Soldado has been prolific in La Liga for Valencia since his arrival, but Valencia need to sell a player this summer to negate the fact that they have not qualified for the Champions League. Meanwhile, Spurs look to have given up any hope of signing Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, after the young Belgium international signed a new contract with the Villans.Subscribe to Football Transfers by Email

Tottenham are favourites to sign Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, after the highly-rated striker handed in a transfer request at Villa Park. Benteke scored 19 Premier League goals for Villa in his first campaign in the English top-flight, following a £7million move from Genk last summer.
Speculation had been rife that the youngster would be leaving Villa this summer and this latest development will only add to that speculation. Manchester City, Atletico Madrid and Liverpool are also reported to be interested in signing the striker, but Tottenham are the favourites with the bookmakers.
Brazilian wonderkid and alleged Spurs target Bernard has five offers on the table this summer according to his agent. The 20-year-old is rated as one of the hottest young talents in his homeland.
His club Atletico Mineiro have revealed that they will only sell the youngster if they receive the right offer. Bernard is also believed to be unwilling to leave the Brazilian club while they are still in the Copa Libertadores.
The attacking midfielder has also been linked with Portuguese giants FC Porto and Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund. Spurs look unlikely to pursue their interest after signing Bernard’s compatriot Paulinho.Subscribe to Football Transfers by Email

According to Sky Sports, Tottenham are in negotiations with Brazilian club Corinthians about the signing of Brazil international Paulinho. The central midfielder is rated in the £17million bracket and it seems that negotiations are at an advanced stage.
Paulinho is currently at the Confederations Cup with his national side and scored the equaliser for the Selacao in their recent 2-2 draw with England. Paulinho is highly rated and previously attracted the attention of Italian giants Inter.
Paulinho has been playing in the anchorman role in midfield for his nation, but plays in a more advanced role for his club. The 24-year-old provides a good physical presence in both penalty areas.
Spurs are also being linked with another Brazilian star in Atletico Mineiro’s attacking midfielder Bernard. The youngster is rated as the one of the next big stars in Brazilian football and wanted by a host of other European clubs.
Portuguese giants Porto look like the favourites to capture the youngster, but his agent has stated that he does not have a preference where his future lies this summer. It is unlikely that the talented youngster will remain in his homeland much longer though.Subscribe to Football Transfers by Email

Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale has suggested he will remain at White Hart Lane after hailing the impact of manager Andre Villas-Boas on his career.
The Wales international, who won PFA and Football Writers’ Player of the Year last term, has been heavily linked with a money-spinning move to Spanish giants Real Madrid. The speculation accelerated when Bale’s agent revealed the player would listen to an offer from Real and he is currently odds-on to play for them as his next club following Spurs in the Paddy Power transfer specials.
However, Spurs are determined to hang on to their main man, with a new contract offer worth £130,000-a-week rumoured.
Bale, whose contract runs until 2016, has now spoken out. He appears to be enjoying his football in north London, particularly since Villas-Boas took the reins last summer.
“He has helped me in all aspects of my game. In training we have been working on things that I can do in games and in games he has given me the confidence to do what I want and do what I do best, which is a massive thing for a player,” Bale told Spurs TV.
The 23-year-old has described the Portuguese’s first season as “a very exciting time for the club”, hinting his tactics and style of play were a breath of fresh air.
“Sometimes it does take a bit of time just to get used to it and at the start of the season I think that was a bit difficult. But we adapted and got stronger and stronger,” Bale added.
Bale will be key to Spurs’ hopes of going one better than recent seasons and securing a Champions League place in 2013-14.
Tottenham will also need to have a good summer in the transfer market, something they managed to achieve last year. The signing of Brazil international Leandro Damiao from Internacional would be a good start.Subscribe to Football Transfers by Email
