Toronto FC table bumper contract to Tottenham striker Defoe

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe is set to become the MLS's highest paid player at Toronto FC.

The Mirror says the England international is set to earn a basic $150,000 per week at BMO Field, with the Ontario club set to fork out an MLS-record transfer fee in the region of $13million for his services according to reports.

The fee trumps that spent by Seattle Sounders to take Clint Dempsey from Spurs in August, as the Reds look to make a statement in the MLS off-season.
