Jermain Defoe re-signs with Tottenham

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe ended the uncertainty surrounding his future by signing a new three-year contract Thursday with the north London club that will expire at the end of the 2014-15 season.

Defoe's place at Spurs appeared to be in doubt after the Barclays Premier League side was linked with a number of other strikers, but the 29-year-old has decided to stay at White Hart Lane.

Shortly after being called up to the England squad for their qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine, the striker tweeted: "Fantastic week signed my new contract at spurs & meeting up with England on Monday for 2 important games #goalsgoalsgoals."

Defoe himself appeared to cast doubt on his future at Spurs when he publicly declared earlier this summer that he would consider leaving if he was not promised first-team football.

He started the club's first two games of the Barclays Premier League season, however, and that appears to have convinced him that he is firmly in the plans of new manager Andre Villas-Boas.

Villas-Boas has been linked with a number of forwards -- including Leandro Damiao, Loic Remy and Willian, but he now appears content with his three strikers -- Defoe, Emmanuel Adebayor, and academy graduate Harry Kane.
