Jermain Defoe’s time in Tottenham seems to be counting down, with the interim coach Tim Sherwood preferring to use Adebayor and Soldado as his main attacking players. Following the departure of Andre Villas-Boas from Tottenham, Tim Sherwood was appointed as the temporarily coach until they can snatch a more suitable person for the vacant role.
Even with Sherwood at the head of the club, Defoe is still being overshadowed by his teammates although this could change in an instant depending on who will be in charge of the club in January as Tottenham still are in search of another coach.
The last appearance that Defoe managed to make was in the earlier days of December as he was placed during Tottenham’s Capital One Cup match against West Ham which they eventually lost.
It is believed that now he picked up a hamstring injury that will leave him further out of the playing fields of the main team. QPR who are now fighting in the top spots of the Championship league and hoping to snatch the top spot in order to get promoted back to the Premier League could use this chance to sign Defoe to boost their title and promotion chances.
QPR are searching for a new arrival with the assistant manager of the club Kevin Bond having said to the English media that he wants to ‘’bring in another real striker option, one who can score goals and play off someone up front’’. This is why Jermain Defoe is starting to become a much more viable option considering the situation he is going through in Tottenham.
Toronto FC is another club that might be the next destination of Jermain Defoe with some reports emerging claiming that the MLS club is preparing a $10 million move that would make him the highest paid player in the history of the MLS.
