Tottenham are willing to sell Jermain Defoe this month.

The Mail on Sunday says Queens Park Rangers have been told it will cost them £6million to land England striker Defoe from Tottenham.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is keen to raise funds from squad players such as Defoe in the belief that Real Madrid target Gareth Bale will be staying at White Hart Lane next season.

Defoe, 30, will only be a bit-part player at Tottenham next season, following the arrival of Roberto Soldado from Valencia for a club-record £26m, and both Levy and Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas are happy to allow him to leave if a club meets the £6m asking price.
