Ashton urges West Ham to re-sign Tottenham striker Defoe

Former West Ham United striker Dean Ashton wants to see his old club move for Tottenham ace Jermain Defoe.

Ashton, who played for the club from 2006-2009 before he was forced to retire, feels Defoe would be an ideal solution to their striking woes.

He told talkSPORT: "He's certainly the type of player West Ham could do with at the moment, a player that is going to get goals.

"I think the West Ham fans wouldn't mind having Jermain back even though he divided the club when he left.

"I'm like a lot of players who have played with Jermain Defoe who will definitely say he's up there with the best finishers we've ever played with."
