The future of ex West Ham and current Tottenham forward Jermain Defoe is back in the limelight, as Tottenham have signed Valencia/Spanish international Roberto Soldado.
It now appears evident that Defoe’s second stint in North London is over, with a list of potential suitors waiting to pounce; could a deal with former club West Ham United be struck?
West Ham fans have a complicated relationship with Jermain, well actually it’s not that complicated; they don’t like him!
After leaving back in 2004; many West Ham fans haven’t forgiven their ex goal poacher (we have long memories)!
We can agree on one thing though, Jermain Defoe is a natural goal-scorer who could become a valuable asset to any club. Which makes me ask, should we be tempted into making a bid for him?
Petit quarrels aside, we need a new striker; forget about wages,transfer fees, worrying about all that hasn’t got us anywhere so far. I’m a realist and I believe that we should be smart in our investments but if you want goals; Jermain Defoe can provide just that!
It remains unknown as to how Defoe would feel about any possible return to East London but we would provide him with First Team/Premier League football and, an oppurtunity to prove himself for the upcoming World cup, something a team like recently linked QPR can’t!
I would love Jermain back, people have their own opinions on the matter but this transfer fiasco regarding a new striker has went on for too long now, to sign good proven players you need to be willing to pay decent wages, at this current moment in time it’s not worth taking a gamble on an unknown quantity only to get no return, as West Ham fan’s we are far too familiar with that feeling!
Would YOU welcome Jermain Defoe back?
