Tottenham are still finalising the signing of Portsmouth striker Jermain Defoe.

Defoe has trained with his new Tottenham team-mates - but the finishing touches are still being put on his return to White Hart Lane from Portsmouth.

The 26-year-old striker has agreed to rejoin the club he left just under a year ago and was paraded to fans ahead of the Carling Cup victory over Burnley, although the final paperwork is still to be processed by the Premier League.

Despite the expectation of swift confirmation of the deal there has been no formal announcement of the transfer being completed - but it is understood there will be no major problems in getting him registered by Friday.
