Defoe keen to finish career with Tottenham

Jermain Defoe insists he would love to end his career with Tottenham.

The 27-year old, who is currently sidelined with an ankle injury, admits things are going well at White Hart Lane and says he would love to be a Spurs man for the remainder of his playing days.

"Everything about the club tells you they are going in the right direction and I want to remain a part of that," he said.

"We may have injuries but it says so much about the depth and the strength of our squad that we can still go into this game against Twente confident of our chances.

"From front to back we have quality players, internationals, who can make the difference at the top level.

"We also have a manager in Harry Redknapp that has shown himself to be right up there with the best in the business.

"You'd have to crazy not to want to stay a part of that. So yes, I want to stay for the rest of my career because I believe Tottenham will go on to establish themselves in the top four under Harry."
