Tottenham striker Defoe: Deadline day mega spending was crazy
Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe admits he was amazed by the mega spending on transfer deadline day.
Over £133 million was spent in the final hours of Monday's deadline.
Defoe told the Daily Express: "I watched it all as it unfolded. It was interesting to see what goes on, especially when you've been involved in that yourself.
"When you're settled and you know you're not going anywhere you can just chill out, relax and see what goes on. It was mad the amount of money spent, compared to last January. How much was it then? £30m? And [this window] was more than £200m - it's crazy.
"And the money that was asked for some players, it's just mad. But that's how it's going. If you want the top players, you've got to pay.
"When people were saying, 'Oh, Chelsea might be gone', I said, 'Well, it only takes one game and they'll be back'," he said. "And they've picked it up now. They've got great players with a lot of experience - and now Torres.
"When a club sign a new player - and a big player - it lifts the whole place. Other players want to impress him. The fans are going to be buzzing. I can't see them dropping many more points."
