Tottenham Head Coach Tim Sherwood has hailed striker Jermain Defoe as a club legend ahead of his imminent move to Toronto FC, Goal.com has reported.

The move to Canada was agreed during the January transfer window, and Defoe will be given his White Hart Lane farewell on Thursday evening when Tottenham take on Dnipro in the second leg of their Europa League round of 32 tie. However, the England international will be unable to play in the match due to a hamstring injury.

Defoe has enjoyed two spells at Tottenham, scoring a total of 138 goals in 357 appearances, making him the sixth highest scorer in the club’s history, and their top European scorer with 22 goals. One of his major highlights was representing Spurs in the Champions League in 2010-11, helping them to the quarter-final stage.

And on Wednesday, Sherwood hailed the 31-year-old as a Tottenham legend, saying: "Obviously you would argue that there's Jimmy Greaves but Jermain Defoe is possibly one of the best goalscorers the club's ever seen. Unfortunately he's not fit. He'll be at the game to say his goodbyes, hopefully.

"Let's hope we can find another like Jermain Defoe because he's all about goals. Whenever he pulled on the Tottenham shirt he always played with his heart and spirit for the club and gave everything, and everyone appreciates his efforts here. He certainly will be a legend at the club."
