Spurs striker to commit future to the club

According to reports in today's Daily Mirror, Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe is to sign a new deal at the club.

The player's future at the club has been thrown into doubt in recent weeks after it was reported that Spurs boss Juande Ramos told the player he could leave the club.

Aston Villa, Newcastle and Man City were all said to be interested in the player but it now appears as though their chances of signing the 25-year old are very slim.

The England international in my view is too good to be sitting on the bench every week. I still feel that Berbatov and Keane are better than him and he will continue to struggle to nail down a first team place at White Hart Lane.
