Defoe: I'm not leaving Tottenham

Jermain Defoe has rubbished reports linking him with a move to Queens Park Rangers in January and says he wants to end his career at Tottenham.

The England striker has enjoyed an impressive start to the season under Andre Villas-Boas, scoring seven goals to steer Tottenham up to fifth in the Premier League.

Former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp's arrival at QPR had sparked reports Defoe could be on his way to Loftus Road to be reunited with the manager who he played under at West Ham, Portsmouth and Spurs, but he insists he has no intention of leaving White Hart Lane.

"That's not going to happen. I'm not leaving Tottenham," Defoe told Sky Sports News. "To score goals at such a big club like this, it's fantastic. I can honestly say that even if the opportunity [arose] to leave the club it won't be happening.

"I don't want to leave the club; I'm a Spurs player, I love playing for the club, I love the boys, the manager's great and I'm happy."

Defoe, 30, even went as far as saying that he would be happy to see out his career at Spurs.

"I can honestly say I would like to finish my career at Tottenham," Defoe said. "It's a big club, and the feeling I get when I score goals is the greatest feeling in the world.

"I want to achieve something special for the club. The team spirit is great, we have a laugh every day - it's great and I would like to finish my career at Tottenham."
