One of the worst-hidden transfer rumours looks to be on the verge of happening. Jermain Defoe is nearing a move to MLS side Toronto FC.
The Toronto Sun has reported that “Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe will be unveiled as TFC’s newest Designated Player Monday morning”
No direct mention of Defoe appeared on the club’s own official website, but an image on the home page carries the words “It’s a bloody big deal”, accompanied by Monday’s date.
That link leads to a video, posted by Toronto FC on YouTube and described by the Toronto Sun as “a cheeky (club) marketing campaign”, of a man in a white polo shirt sitting in what resembles an English cafe. The man drinks from a cup of tea before spitting the drink out in shock at what he has seen on a television screen, before Toronto’s logo appears beside him.
JD has struggled to break into the starting line-up under coaches Andre Villas-Boas and his replacement Tim Sherwood, though, with Roberto Soldado and most recently Emmanuel Adebayor preferred.
