Bent determined to keep Defoe out of Spurs picture

Darren Bent is determined to keep good friend Jermain Defoe out of the Tottenham first team this season.

The £16.5 million signing declared: "We don't talk about the situation, only about the team.

"I am very close to Jermain and we remain good mates. But the best thing I can do is worry about myself.

"We all have jobs to do and if I'm firing, Jermain is firing - and so too are Keane and Berbo - then we will be in a fantastic position.

"A perfect season for me would be playing and scoring - and finishing in the top four. England is a bonus."
