Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Vilas-Boas has piled praise onto striker Jermain Defoe.
Defoe is one goal away from the European goalscoring record at Tottenham after helping his side to a 2-0 win in the Europa League away at Anzhi Makhachkala.
“It was another great goal, a great finish. It's really good to see him out there again doing extremely well whenever he's given the opportunity,” said AVB.
The club have confirmed that the 23-year-old is one of several players to be offered new contracts to keep them in Spain.
Reports suggest that AVB was hoping to approach the player this January, getting him to sign a pre-contract agreement before a permanent move next summer.
The Romanian forward was a free agent and on the radar of Andre Villas-Boas as he looked to sure up his attack ahead of a long season.
“I talked to Raul, who is a good friend of the president. I asked and he helped me. I am an attacker and the important thing is to score goals. The important thing is that they know how to play. Scoring goals is important to me and I hope to score many,” he said.
