Former Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe could be back on his way to the Premier League.

Defoe is currently plying his trade in the MLS for Toronto FC, but is said to be keen on a return to England, with Hull City boss Steve Bruce already publically declaring his interest in the 32-year-old.

Wages would be an issue for Hull, Defoe is on £60,000-a-week which could rise to £90,000-a-week with Toronto.

With Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor out of sorts, we are relying on Harry Kane to deliver us goals – which in fairness he is doing.  Would it be worth us bringing Defoe back to the Lane to act as a foil for Kane?   Defoe scored 11 goals in his 19 Major League Soccer games for Toronto.

Bruce told the media: “If he becomes available, which I believe he is, then we’d love to do something.

“I think it might be too expensive, but it’s not a bad bit of speculation.

“You ask any club in the bottom of the division about Defoe, all of us would say ‘yes’.

“Whether we can do it financially is another problem.”

Would you take Defoe back at Spurs?  Have your say below.
