Defoe to QPR just an idea

I see Jermain Defoe is being linked with a loan move to Queens Park Rangers under Harry Redknapp during the MLS close season.

Defoe to QPR just an idea


Quite frankly the story is unlikely to be more than a hopeful dream from Harry. Yes it would be nice for QPR but look at it from Toronto's point of view, they afterall his employers.

Defoe is currently 31 and is being paid £90,000 a week to turn out for Toronto FC in Major League Soccer. He has scored 7 goals in 8 games so far with Toronto sitting 4th in the 10 team Eastern Division with several games in hand just 4 points behind the leaders with 2 games in hand.

They are 3 points behind the teams in 2nd and 3rd and have 4 and 3 games in hand respectively. Toronto have scored 15 goals, Defoe has 7 of them.

I mention all those statistics just to demonstrate how important Jermain Defoe is to Toronto FC, if £90,000 a week didn't tell you already. Now ask yourself if you have someone that important, are you going to let them go and possibly get injured playing for someone else?

I know David Beckham did it but with all due respect to Defoe he is not the icon and publicity machine that Posh and Becks are.

I'm sure Harry would love the guy playing for QPR but would Ryan Nelsen and what would his employers say if he got injured? The story has been written by the Sunday People as if it has already been signed, he may not even be fit next January.

It's an idea being mooted to bring a then 32 year-old over on loan for 2 months, noting signed, nothing sealed, nothing delivered.
