Portsmouth boss: Defoe thrilled for Cup success

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp has revealed Jermain Defoe was thrilled for their FA Cup success at Manchester United.

Defoe missed the game as he was Cup-tied and Redknapp said: "The first text I got on Saturday after the game was from Jermain. He was so pleased and was really buzzing. He told me to tell the boys how fantastic it was.

"He is a good lad and is looking at the long term. He has come here to play and has started well with a few goals, and I'm sure he will be looking to bag a few more by the end of the season."
