As the rumour mill shifted into gear ahead of the January transfer window opening, it was being reported that Bournemouth striker and former England and Tottenham Hotspur man, Jermain Defoe could be available this month owing to a lack of game time at his current club.

With 142 goals for Spurs in 360 games, the now 36-year-old still has a season or two in him as he looks towards winding down his long career, and plenty of Leeds United fans on social media believe that if a suitable financial deal could be done, he’d be a massive addition to the group as we gun for promotion back to the Premier League under manager Marcelo Bielsa in the campaign of 2018/19.

With a reported wage of over £100,000 a week, even 40% of that could prove problematic for Leeds depending on where we sit with the various regulations (irrespective of whether that’s a loan or a free transfer) and I’m actually not sure he’s a Bielsa kind of player either.

These fans seem convinced of his qualities though and I can understand their point.
