Jol admits Tottenham may sell Defoe

Tottenham boss Martin Jol admits striker Jermain Defoe could be sold before Friday's transfer deadline.

Jol said: "I had an argument with him because everyone else is committed and he does not want to extend his contract.

"I want to keep him but the chairman does not want another Sol Campbell on his hands.

"Jermain tells everybody he loves the club and we love him.

"We've made him a good offer but he won't even discuss it."

Defoe, 24, has two years left on his contract but is unhappy at sitting on the bench.

And he confronted Jol after getting just 15 minutes during the 4-0 win over Derby.

Jol added: "This is not a kindergarten - it's a tough business."
