The rumour mill for January transfer activities seems to get earlier and earlier each season. This time Villa are once again being linked to England and Spurs striker Jermain Defoe.

Reports at the end of the summer transfer window linked us to Defoe but they proved unfounded or at least the money wasn’t yet there following the takeover situation.

This time both the News of the World and The Mail on Sunday are linking Martin O’Neill to a £7million for the Tottenham star who we’ll be able to get a good look at, probably sitting on the bench where he appears to spend most of his time under Martin Jol, next weekend as they visit Villa Park on Saturday.

  • Great move for the club and for the player , he needs regular games to enhance his england credentials and for the club you know he will get goals !

  • agreed, could be a top player, with spurs lack of goals I can’t understand why they aren’t using him, he seems to have pace a-plenty.

  • I’d love to get Defoe. Has always scored goals whenever he’s been given a proper chance. Can’t understand why he isn’t starting for Spurs at the moment. 7 million would be good business IMO

  • He doesn’t spend most of the time on the bench!! Are you working for NoTW!?

    Poor article and ****e rumours!

  • Defoe would only leave to enhance his career not take a few steps back, villa to small a club for him before you villians start getting excited, and 7m gotta be joke worth at least double that

  • Leaving Spurs (small team) to join Villa (big team – potentially massive team) would certainly enhance his career . He’d score 20+ each season in claret n blue. Great article! Good business! SOTC

  • rubbish article and just mde up like all stories in October, this was in the mirror the other week ( linked on newsnow )and is hilarious .lets make up another story and get people to buy the paper. I only buy the telegraph now as the sun, mirror, mail ,

  • Listen to all these Villa fans, get taken over my some rich yank and they think they’re gonna challenge chelski and the mancs for the title

  • Listen to all these Spurs fans! what have they ever done? Spurs the self-proclaimed ‘great club’ of north London. Suffering from severe delusions of grandeur for the last 50+ years!

  • LOL, Have a look at our honours from the last 50 years, we would challenge most in England. I doubt Defoe would leave for Villa, he would look abit higher than an average team and plus he would never leave London, he has publically said that, so just forg

  • haha… villa are a big club yeah, but there not on spurs’ level. the top 5 clubs in english history, 1-liverpool, 2-man u, 3-arsenal, 4-spurs, 5-everton… if you dont believe that go look it up. spurs have won more honors in their history than villa, fu

  • ScottDayid.

    Just looked at Spurs honours for the last 50 years.

    Where is your European Cup???????????????????

  • Spurs actually DON’T have more honours than Villa plus Everton have a shed load more than Spurs. I didn’t note the European Cup being on their list of honours either. FACT.

  • Been on the Spurs website which was interesting. I know MON would get the best out of him but most of the posts suggest the fans wouldn’t mind getting rid! Is he the natural goalscorer we think he is? Gonna be a cracking Jan with all the rumours going
