Hull move to rumble Toronto FC plans for Spurs striker Defoe

A Toronto FC move for Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe is close to being sealed.

The People says Defoe, 31, is expected to complete a £90,000-a-week move to MLS side Toronto - managed by former Spurs defender Ryan Nelsen - later this month ­although Hull boss Steve Bruce believes he still has a chance to hijack the deal.

Bruce has cash for a striker and is willing to blow a big chunk on Defoe.

He hopes that he has two major assets in his favour - the chance to stay in the Premier League one plus point, and teaming up with former Spurs pals Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone another.
