Jermain Defoe to leave Toronto before January transfer window?

Jermain Defoe is allegedly looking to force through a move away from Toronto before the January transfer window.

Jermain Defoe is reportedly looking to leave MLS side Toronto before the transfer window reopens in January.

The 31-year-old was linked with deadline-day moves to Premier League sides Queens Park Rangers and Leicester City, with both moves falling through.

The former England striker is allegedly looking at all options to quit the Canadian side to force a move back to Europe.

However, Defoe is only six months into his four-year deal with Toronto, rendering it costly if the former Tottenham player wanted to leave his contract.

The MLS club paid Spurs £6m for Defoe last January and will be looking to sell the striker in the next transfer window to recoup his transfer fee.
