Defoe keen to end career at Spurs

The 27-year-old is relishing Spurs’ involvement in the Champions

League for the first time, and he would love to continue playing

under Harry Redknapp, who he says “has shown himself to be right up

there with the best in the business”. Defoe told the Daily Mirror:

“Everything about the club tells you they are going in the right

direction and I want to remain a part of that. “You’d have to crazy

not to want to stay a part of that. So yes, I want to stay for the

rest of my career because I believe Tottenham will go on to

establish themselves in the top four under Harry.”
