Frustrated Defoe won't seek move

Jermain Defoe has reaffirmed his desire to secure regular football, but has insisted he has never asked to leave Tottenham.

The England international has slipped down the striking hierarchy at White Hart Lane, with Emmanuel Adebayor preferred in the attacking role under Harry Redknapp.

Defoe has been linked with a move away from Tottenham in the January window and although he is frustrated with his position, he will not engineer a transfer.

He told Sky Sports News: "At the end of the day it's not a case of me saying 'I want to go here, I'm not playing, I want to leave the club'. I've been here six years, I've never said that once. I think the fans know that.

"It's just a case of me playing. I could understand if I was 19, 20 and I had time on my hands but I'm 29 now and, like I've always said, all I want to do is play football. It's as simple as that."

Spurs face leaders Manchester City on Sunday and Defoe could be in line for a start, as Adebayor is ineligible due to the terms of his loan.

He said: "As it stands I'm a Tottenham player and if I do play against Manchester City I'll be fully committed. I'm sure everyone knows that at the club."
