Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe has dismissed interest from QPR.

Defoe insists he is going nowhere and that he is prepared to wait for his chance to stake his claim for a place in Spurs' side.

"Fans who have probably read things come up to me every day and say, 'Don't leave the club'. I was at a charity dinner the other night when a fan came up and said it to me," Defoe told the Daily Mirror.

"I've done it before - when I went to Portsmouth and scored my goals to remind people what I can do - but I am committed to Tottenham. I love the club and I love the fans.

"It's a really important time for the club. Everyone wants to play their part and I'm no different."
