Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe has 101 reasons to stay at White Hart Lane next season, and insists he has no intention of leaving.
The 28-year-old England international striker endured a frustrating campaign for Spurs, netting only four goals for Harry Redknapp's side and seeing his form dip – a result of being consistently in and out of the team.
But Defoe is determined to stay positive and revealed his aspirations for Tottenham next term.
"I've always said I love this club and I don't want to leave," he said. "I want to commit myself to the club, hopefully I've got many more years."
A goal against West Bromwich Albion at the end of April saw Defoe become only the 16th player in Spurs' history to reach 100 goals for the club, and he is hoping to add plenty more to that in 2011-12.
"When I retire and I look at the list and I'm in the top ten or top five, something like that, it would be special. This club has had some amazing players," he continued.
"There's a lot more goals in me, I feel strong. I always look after my body so I know I've got a lot of years left.
"You only get one chance, it's a short career and you've got to make the most of it. And now I've scored 100 goals, I can forget about that record and start from fresh.
"When you're playing with good players you're going to get the chances. So it's just down to me to keep focused and make sure that, when I get chances, I finish them.
"I look forward to getting the next 10 and then look forward to the next season and having a great season."
