Au revior to Defoe

Tottenham says good bye to Jermaine...the 25 year old English striker who has found it tough to get minutes for Spurs ever since Berbatov arrived.

We lost Defoe because we made a stupid signing in the summer. We pay 16.5 million pounds for Bent, then we only get 9 million for Defoe. Is Bent that much better than Defoe? Is he even better? I say he's not. The good news is that we get a little younger, Defoe is 25, Bent is 23 [turning 24 on Wednesday].

Jermaine was good for us, and he will improve with the playing time Redknapp will give him at Pompey. I think he'll thrive there...good for Defoe. We'll miss you.
