Blackburn want Defoe, Spurs want Samba?


Blackburn could make a move for Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe, possibly in a swap deal that would take defender Chris Samba to Spurs.

That is what is being reported in today’s Daily Mirror. Defoe has previously admitted he has been unhappy with his bit-part role at Spurs last season but does not want to push to leave the club.

Samba has been previously linked with a move to Arsenal but Spurs are keen to sign another central defender following the release of Jonathan Woodgate.

Blackburn’s biggest problem would be trying to persuade Defoe to leave his native London.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Are you honestly telling me that Samba is worth as much as Defoe???

    Defoe is a match winner who was dropped from the next game every time he scored last season. Well done ‘Arry.

    Samba’s a fine defender but not worth losing Defoe for. I believe he’ll come good next season – whoever he’s playing for….

    • Spot on mate. Defoe was repeatedly mismanaged by Harry last season in exactly this way. Defoe is a streaky striker and has been all his career! Harry of all people should know!

  2. I think it would be a good move for Defoe. He would get regular football which is good for his international career and spurs would be getting a excellent centre back. I would rate them both at the same level.

    What sort of a comment is that?
    You idiot
    Defoe does what strikers are paid to do. Score goals. And a striker needs to be on the pitch in the first place to score goals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    And learn some English words that don't have f or c at the beginning!!!!!!!!!!
    In your own words….. Tosser
