Jermain Defoe appears to be heading for the White Hart Lane exit door after reportedly agreeing a deal with MLS side Toronto FC.

The 31-year-old has struggled to cement a regular first-team place this season, with Andre Villas-Boas preferring to play Roberto Soldado as the lone striker.Defoe has predominantly been used for the Europa League, and has broken Martin Chivers’ long-standing club record of 23 goals in European competitions.

But reports suggest that Defoe has put paid to any hopes of staying in England by agreeing a four-year deal in which he will earn a princely sum of £90,000-a-week.

Reports also suggest a possible deal has been on the cards for a while, with Toronto prepared to top the £67,000-a-week Defoe currently pockets.

It is also thought that Defoe will seek talks with Roy Hodgson to ascertain the impact it could have on him making the England squad for the World Cup.

Defoe has yet to open his account in the Premier League this season.
