Manchester City will reportedly launch a summer move for Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe, but Spurs will only sanction a switch if they can have Craig Bellamy in exchange, it has been claimed.

According to the Daily Mail, City are making contingency plans should Carlos Tevez depart Eastlands at the end of the season and have identified Defoe as a potential replacement.

The same source suggests that Spurs are reluctant to sell to a Barclays Premier League rival - even though Defoe remains on the peripheries at White Hart Lane - but may be prepared to negotiate.

It has been speculated that Spurs would consider swapping Defoe for Bellamy - who is currently on loan at Cardiff - and this proposed deal could prove to be a suitable conclusion for both clubs.


The Daily Mail believes Harry Redknapp remains 'keen' on Bellamy having attempted to sign the 32-year-old from West Ham and feels he could be an asset to Spurs.
