With the January transfer window just a couple of weeks away, speculation relating to some of football's biggest names is sure to arise.
After playing two games in a row for Tottenham Hotspur in early December, Defoe was dropped for Sunday's 5-0 humbling to Liverpool.
His ex-manager Andre Villas-Boas said he still saw a role for the striker in North London. The management has changed at Spurs. With plenty of games coming up we may see if that holds up under the new regime, or if the situation goes the other way.
Developments relating to a possible move away from Spurs for Defoe will be covered here throughout this week. Of course, anything suggesting he is going to stay will be noted, too.
As it would affect the striker's standing at Spurs, speculation surrounding other occurrences and speculation relating to the club's attack will be recorded here as well.
Make sure to check back here throughout the week.
