JERMAIN DEFOE has set his sights on having a big season for Tottenham Hotspur.

The England international missed three months of the season with a foot injury, after re-joining the club in the January transfer window from Portsmouth.

Defoe is arugably Harry Redknapp’s first choice selection as striker at White Hart Lane and the little forward can’t wait for the campaign to start.

“That rest was more than enough for me,” he told the Sunday Mirror.

“I was injured towards the end of last season, out for 11 weeks and I missed a lot of games, so it would have been different for the international lads who played the full season, but for me it was fine and I’m ready to go.

“I always look forward to pre-season, coming in and training with the lads and having the banter with them.

“You miss that when you are away and it’s great to see them all again.

“I’ll come back feeling really good, raring to go again and hopefully have a really big season.”

How many goals do you think Defoe will score this season?  Whatever your view, leave it below.
