Hi, spurs fan in peace.
I've heard a rumour that JD will be coming back to Spurs (I think it was Lauren who said it and also Spurs rumours flying about)
Now before some of you think its not allowed in the EPL rules (a player can't return to their previous club within a year), this rule can be overturned if an appeal is made to the EPL. So this transfer can happen.
At first I just dismissed this rumour, however there are a few signs that are making me think this rumour could be true.
Redknapp clearly thinks Defoe is a great player, JD likes him and JD loved his time at Spurs (he just couldn't get into the team due to Keane-Berba partnership) he loves us fans, it was clear when he was at Spurs, as he said "the fans are the ones keeping me at the club".
His form has suddenly dropped and I heard a Pompey fan say that Defoe's heart is not at Pompey any more. Which could be true since HR left and Diarra too and things aren't going your way atm.
We are in desperate need of a striker and JD would be perfect. You need the money, we have the money so perhaps its true...
Now I'm not sure what reaction this will get but I'm not trying to wind any of you up on here, I am just interested what you think about this rumour and the points mentioned above.
Cheers and good luck with your season!
