Ex Hammer Jermaine Defoe has dismissed rumours that he might join QPR in January. Judas he may be, but he is not willing to walk out on Tottenham when things are looking so good - even if he isn't playing; and there is just a suggestion that he doesn't consider the Rs worthy of his talents anyway.
To be honest, QPR look a reasonable fit for Defoe to me, if Fernandes and Mittal really are prepared to dip into their pockets and splash the cash. Tottenham apart, none of the big clubs have ever fancied him but that, of course, hasn't registered with Defoe who still sees himself as a footballing god.
Truth is, the guy is a nearly man. He had the potential to be something very special but, like so many, he tripped over his own ego. Still, he would do a job for QPR and would score enough goals to ensure they stay in the Prem - if his ego allows him to make such an obvious step down.
Chances of it happening? Remote.
