Newcastle in for Defoe?

Jermain DefoeNewcastle United are being linked with a £10m move for Jermain Defoe. It looks like the speculation appears in The Mirror newspaper.

The north east club’s manager Glenn Roeder has confirmed that he’s looking to sign a striker in January, whether or not he is targetting Defoe he fails to confirm. If it’s just 2 + 2 = 5 jounalism, who knows.

The fact that Defoe is our best player when it comes to shots on goal / shots on target in the Premiership is amazing considering he’s only started twice. Oddly enough, defender Michael Dawson is next with 9 shots and 5 on target!

According to the stats, looks like Dimitar Berbatov and Defoe would be our best partnership. Whether we’ll ever see that, we’ll have to wait and see.
