Tottenham boss Redknapp: Defoe return great news

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp was delighted to have Jermain Defoe back in training yesterday.

Defoe will return in Saturday's Premier League clash at Sunderland - just 12 days after tearing his hamstring in training.

Redknapp said: "It's great news. Jermain trained fully today and is in the squad for the weekend.

"I'm really pleased. He's a terrific little striker and a fighter. It's great to have him back so soon."
