Tottenham to Toronto: Jermain Defoe's Last Decade in Pictures

As he prepares to join Toronto FC next month, Jermain Defoe's long goodbye to Tottenham Hotspur will continue over the coming weeks in one form or another.

A goal-scoring substitute in Tottenham's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace just over a week ago, it was a watching brief for Defoe as his soon-to-be ex-club beat Swansea City this weekend.

The foreknowledge of the England international's transfer gives us a longer chance than usual to examine the ramifications of such a high-profile move. Or in this instance, reflect upon the path that led to it.

The tale of Defoe's decade since first joining Spurs is in many respects a story of the club's fortunes itself. Arriving as he did, in trying circumstances, and since playing a part in a largely healthy period for the North Londoners.

Accompanied and told through images of some of that journey's significant steps, we take a look back at a memorable 10 years.
