Hull City are interested in bringing in former Tottenham and England striker Jermain Defoe, according to the Daily Telegraph.
Defoe made a switch to Toronto FC of the Major League Soccer just a year ago but looks to be heading back across the pond for a Premier League return. Tottenham have allowed their former striker to train with the club to keep up fitness ahead of an imminent return to English football.
Manager Steve Bruce said: "There have been talks with agents but that's as far as it's gone."

Bruce is also interested in signing Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo on a loan deal until the end of the season alongside Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, and French Ligue 1 club Bordeaux.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the Frenchman will be going out on loan and has a preference that the striker stays in the Premier League, despite Bordeaux claiming he would prefer a temporary move back to his home country.
Defoe has made well over 300 Premier League appearances with West Ham, Portsmouth and Tottenham. The striker may not have the turn of pace he once had but the experience the 32-year old could add to the Hull frontline could be invaluable.
Only time will tell if City can fight off Premier League competition to sign the England veteran, however a deal looks a while off at this stage.
