Defoe: I’m happy at Spurs

Defoe told The Times: “I’m happy here. I just let my football do the talking. When I’m out there playing and I’ve got a smile on my face and I’m playing well, I think people know I’m happy here. All my friends are here and they’re all playing well.

“So, if you’re doing well, as a team and as a club, why would you want to go anywhere? It doesn’t make any sense. I can achieve what I want to achieve here, definitely. The squad’s so strong, there’s so much quality in the squad, I’m playing with good players and that’s all I wanted to do.

“I’m playing and I feel good at the minute. Obviously it’s important to play, especially me as I love football so much. All I want to do is play, score goals, do my best for the team and get a run of games, so I’m really enjoying it.”
