Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe is ready to move to Canada.

The Toronto Sun says Defoe has agreed his move to Toronto FC and will become the highest paid player in MLS history - although it is not yet clear if he will move in January or the summer.

The England striker still hopes to be on the plane to Brazil and is likely to stay in England - either with Spurs or elsewhere - for the remainder of this season.
