Defoe boost for injury-hit Tottenham

BY foxsports • March 31, 2010

Champions League hopefuls Tottenham have been handed a massive boost with the news that Jermain Defoe has made a successful return to training.

Defoe has missed his side's last three games with a hamstring problem picked up in training earlier this month.

The 27-year-old has made a speedy recovery and is in line for a return for this weekend's clash with Sunderland.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp was delighted to have Defoe back in training as they look to maintain their push for a top four finish.

"It's great news. Jermain trained fully today [Tuesday] and is in the squad for the weekend," Redknapp told The Sun.

"I'm really pleased. He's a terrific little striker and a fighter. It's great to have him back so soon."
