Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says a fully fit Jermain Defoe could turn them into title contenders.

The past week has seen Redknapp repeatedly state his belief Tottenham can win the Barclays Premier League this season.

And he's revealed it was the return of Defoe in particular that was giving him such cause for optimism.
