Harry Redknapp is willing to give Jermain Defoe the opportunity to revive his Spurs career.
After seeing the 28-year-old visit a fitness coach in France and complete a strong pre-season, manager Redknapp still has the England international in his plans.
He told the Sunday People: “Jermain did not have the best time of things last season and had problems with injuries.
“He only scored four league goals and he is a 16-17 goal a season player, no question.
“But he has looked fit and he has looked really sharp in pre-season and a lot of that is down to his own efforts.
“He went over to France to see a fitness coach and that really does seem to have helped him a lot.
“I am looking for him to have a big season for Tottenham. He is really flying at the moment.”
