Jermain Defoe: Problems with an old injury

The 30-year-old is definitely out of Thursday's Europa League quarter final against Basel at White Hart Lane.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas admits he has doubts over the availability of the England international for the second leg in Switzerland.

And Villas-Boas believes the Premier League visit of Manchester City on 21 April is a realistic target for Defoe's return.

"Jermain has a muscle injury which is probably going to take him out of the next two games definitely and maybe Basel away," Villas-Boas said.

"If he can't make Basel away he should be fit for Man City.

"It's a big blow. It's on the same muscle that he had a small tear last month. It's on the other side now and it's a big miss as he represents a lot for us and he will be a big miss."

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
