Defoe rates current Spurs team best he's been part of

Jermain Defoe rates the current Tottenham squad the best he's been part of.

Defoe was part of the Martin Jol outfit that secured back-to-back fifth-place finishes in the Premier League in 2006 and 2007.

Defoe, who has netted 106 goals in 271 appearances for Spurs, said: "This is probably the best squad of all, especially with new additions like Emanuel Adebayor and Scott Parker.

"And then there's all the young players coming through. Guys like Kyle Walker and Danny Rose, who have been playing in the Europa League this season. The squad's really good and to see all the younger players coming through is great.

"Obviously, I've been there myself - and it gives everyone a real buzz when they're in and around the first team."
