Jermain Defoe: Happy with Spurs' acquisitions

Jermain Defoe is excited by the potential of the Tottenham squad for the upcoming season, with or without star man Gareth Bale.

Spurs seemed on course to finally finish above bitter North London rivals Arsenal last season, only to see the Gunners put an impressive run together to deny Andre Villas-Boas men a spot in the Champions League for this campaign.

And despite the obvious disappointment of missing out on a top four spot, Defoe believes that their summer transfer business has proved that they mean business this time around.

"Yes, people may say that we missed out on Champions League football last season," he told The Daily Mirror.

"But you look at the way the club has responded and straightaway you are excited about the way the team is being structured to go again."

Valencia hitman Roberto Soldado could seal a move to White Hart Lane in the next few days, and along with the additions of Paulinho from Corinthians and Nacer Chadli from FC Twente, Defoe is pleased with the way the squad is shaping up.

"You're talking about three top players who are going to take Tottenham to the next level," he added.

"Out of those three players, only Chadli has actually joined the squad so far but I've already told him the team spirit is incredible and that he will love it here."

"I can see why Spurs fans would be excited about Soldado coming because I am excited myself about the prospect of playing with him."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
