Jermain Defoe Transfer Rumours: Latest News on Tottenham Star, Week of Dec. 23

Jermain Defoe will be contemplating his future at Tottenham Hotspur over Christmas.

Just as the identity of Tottenham Hotspur's next manager remains uncertain, Jermain Defoe's future with the club remains similarly undetermined.

After playing 90 minutes in Tottenham's 2-1 Capital One Cup defeat to West Ham United last week, the striker was dropped for Sunday's Premier League meeting with Southampton.

Roberto Soldado was chosen ahead of him alongside the returning Emmanuel Adebayor in attack. The two combined for Spurs' first goal in their 3-2 win, with the latter sealing the three points with his second score of the game.

What this means for Defoe under interim manager Tim Sherwood might become clearer over the festive period. Depending on who is in charge of Spurs heading into January, his status could change again.

Developments relating to a possible move away from North London 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, pertinent 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.
