Spurs boss Jol: Contract has nothing to do with Defoe selection

Tottenham boss Martin Jol insists Jermain Defoe isn't being frozen out because he won't sign a new contract.

"There is no issue," said Jol. "Last year he didn't want to sign his contract and he had more starts than any other striker. He had more league starts than Robbie Keane.

"Daniel Levy is the man. They offered him a new contract. It's not about offering it's about signing."
