Defoe may no longer require groin surgery

Harry Redknapp has revealed Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe may no longer require a groin operation.

Redknapp watched on as Peter Crouch netted a hat-trick and Defoe also found the net in Wednesday night's 4-0 win over Young Boys at White Hart Lane, which secured Spurs' passage to the Champions League group stages.

Defoe was scheduled to have an operation next Tuesday, with an expected absence of two to four weeks, which would have ruled him out of England's European Championship qualifiers against Bulgaria and Switzerland and possibly Spurs' Premier League games against West Brom and Wolves.

But the 27-year-old, who has been dogged by the problem since the World Cup, gave a positive assessment of his injury after Tuesday's match and Spurs will assess the problem again after Saturday's match with Wigan. "Now he feels okay so there's a chance it may not happen," Redknapp said.
