Tottenham have announced that Jermain Defoe will link up with the club to train and maintain his fitness as a return to the Barclays Premier League remains a possibility.

Defoe left White Hart Lane last January to move to Major League Soccer having penned a deal with Toronto FC , but has been heavily linked with a comeback with the likes of QPR and Leicester believed to be keen on a move for the 32-year-old striker.

Spurs confirmed the news via their official Twitter account, writing: “We can confirm that @IAmJermainDefoe will train with our Development Squad for the next week to maintain fitness during MLS close season.”

The former West Ham and Portsmouth forward enjoyed a blistering start to his career in MLS, scoring 11 goals in his opening 16 league games for Toronto before his relationship with the club soured.

Having missed out on a place in England’s World Cup squad last summer, Defoe could return to the Premier League and will want to use his time with Tottenham’s youth set-up to keep in peak condition should he find himself signing terms in the coming month.
