Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe is wanted by former club West Ham United.

The Daily Star Sunday says new Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas hasn’t given the forward any assurances over his future.

Defoe, 29, is high on Allardyce’s shopping list – and has a proven record as a Premier League goalscorer.
