Jermain Defoe admits he would welcome the arrival of Peter Crouch at Tottenham Hotspur.

Defoe has partnered Crouch at international level with England and also during his time at Portsmouth.

He said, “I spoke to ‘Crouchy’ over the summer, while we were on England duty. I’ve played with him for several years, at Under 21 and now senior level.

“It’s down to Crouchy, obviously he’s going to go where he’s going to play. If he wants to come here it’s only going to help the team.”

  1. What is going on…..were linked with Huntellar and Negredo
    Now were back tracking to Peter Crouch

    We have got 57Millions pounds worth of Players to sell
    Keane, hudd, Jenas, Bent,Pav, Hutton, Chimbo, OHara

    Stop be tight sPURS…LET EM GO for a reasonable fee and the spent the money on Huntelaar and Young and Vieria

    We’d be pushing fro the champions league with these 3 players

    We allready lost out on Arshavin because were tight….we could have got him for 18Mill….now hes worth about 40

    Makes no sense….Levy and co…….soryt it out.

    Dross out – quality In

  2. Harry Redknapp is going to take us backwards, this is a joke, bent or and pav for crouch. Get him out before it’s too late. He still thinks he’s managing west ham or portsmouth. I see another wasted season on the horizon, with harry gone by january.(i hope)

  3. Get real. We’re not in Europe so what makes you think we’re going to attract world-class players this season? Crouchy is an England international and proven with Defoe. This will be a good signing.

  4. This is a done deal by the looks of it. Crouch has stalled on the sunderland deal- sounds like a phone call from Harry put a spanner in the works on that one. Now Harry has openly shown it too. Crouch would be a fantastic signing for us.

  5. what the hell is spurs thinking about we dont need crouch we need world class strikers week in week out strikers not every now and again strikers,to compete with europes best clubs we have to have europe’s class strikers,if we sign him i really think we have lost the plot and whats he gonna cost us 12-14 million what a waste of money,would prefer to keep bent

  6. although i’m not english, i’m a true lilly white at heart and i prefer english strikers for my beloved spurs. the idea of crouch partnering defoe sounds delicious. if they do well at club level, it will be good for england. by the way, harry did fantastic last season. leave him be, let him do his work.

  7. a great team player in the sheringham mold in terms of holding ball up and bringing others in the game, could see defoe bag a cool 20 plus with the addition of crouch me thinks, a clever player with a neat touch for a tall guy, i trust harry to do whats right

  8. paterson.83 – i’m with you bro. if he’s in, it’s going to be a good season for us. come on harry, go get the big guy.

  9. I said on the old rivals site that Used-Car Harry would spend millions on sacks of crap. Cue my prophecy being fulfilled. Those of us like Billericay and TDL know the truth. Sheesh.

  10. think crouchy can do a better job than pav. Tho if the green light was there would have huntlaar over most strikers think he is top notch just think he beyond us at this moment
