Defoe plans Spurs stay despite Euro 2012 worry

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe has quashed talk of him quitting the club in January, insisting he remains committed to competing for a first XI spot.

Due to Harry Redknapp’s preference for playing Emmanuel Adebayor and Rafael van der Vaart in attack, Defoe’s opportunities have been largely limited to substitute appearances, and the 29-year-old striker has been heavily linked with fellow London club QPR in the media of late.

However, he told the Daily Mirror, “I am committed to Tottenham; I love the club and I love the fans. It’s a really important time for the club, everyone wants to play their part, and I’m no different.”

He also conceded, “I won’t lie, I am worried about not going to the European Championship. I want to give myself every chance. But I’m going to bide my time.”
