Jermain Defoe says Tottenham's fans have convinced him about staying at White Hart Lane.
"When the fans are like that with me I do not want to go anywhere."
Defoe was not even on the bench against Arsenal last Saturday and boss Martin Jol could not guarantee him a place in the starting XI against Bolton on Sunday.
"I said to myself I have got nothing to prove, but it has been difficult and I have just kept my head up and worked hard in training," said Defoe.
"In a way I think I am stronger now and I always said if I am given a chance I will try my best."
