Tottenham: Four men who should follow Gareth Bale out the exit door (5)

1. Jermain Defoe

Football News

The last name on our list is a man Spurs fans would undoubtedly want to keep at the club.

Defoe's in his second spell at the club and, having bagged over a century of goals, he's a firm fans favourite.

However, the adoration of Spurs' fans is not going to earn him a place in Roy Hodgson's squad should England make it to next summer's World Cup. Defoe will be 35 by the time the 2018 edition rolls around meaning Brazil 2014 is likely to be his final opportunity to play in international football's show-piece event.

With the emergence of Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck, Defoe is fully aware he needs to get more game time to force his way into Hodgson's plans, and with Roberto Soldado in fine form, that's likely to be away from White Hart Lane.

Neither the player or the club would want to part ways but for the sake of Defoe's international ambitions it may be a necessity, and if the pint-sized hit-man becomes available in January there'll be a host of clubs competing for his signature.
