Spurs are negotiating with Manchester City about a loan signing for the striker.
â€śI played against him when I was young [in France] so I know him well,â€™â€™ the Tottenham Hotspur left-back said. â€śHe is a little bit like Peter Crouch but with more mobility. He will find a good complicity with Defoe because Jermain is used to playing with that style of player. We saw what he did against us in Madrid [on loan at Real] last season, so I am sure he will help us.
â€śIf the manager signs him itâ€™s not to finish fifth or sixth. Heâ€™s a player from one of the big four and if we get a player from one of those clubs, itâ€™s for Tottenham to finish in the big four. We know his reputation but we donâ€™t care about that if he scores many goals.â€ť
