Tottenham set for bumper FA compo from Defoe injury

Tottenham are set for a bumper compo payout for Jermain Defoe's ankle injury.

Spurs are set for a £1million insurance payout from the FA.

Striker Defoe faces at least three months on the sidelines after picking up an ankle injury in England's win over Switzerland.

The FA's insurance policy pays clubs when players are injured on international duty so Defoe's £60,000-a-week salary is covered.
