Picture Special: Jermain Defoe says goodbye to Tottenham Hotspur

Jermain Defoe as said his goodbyes to Tottenham as he heads off to play in the MLS.

Jermain Defoe was given the chance to say goodbye to Tottenham Hotspur last night as he heads off for a new challenge playing for Toronto in the MLS.

Defoe was presented at half-time during Tottenham’s 3-1 win against Dnipro in the Europa League and received a warm reception from the White Hart Lane crowd as he bid them farewell.

Tottenham head coach Tim Sherwood has described Defoe as a club legend for his exploits across two different spells for the North Londoners.

“Jermain Defoe is, possibly along with Jimmy Greaves, one of the best goalscorers this club has ever seen. Let's hope we can find another one like Jermain Defoe because he is all about goals - Everyone appreciated his efforts and he certainly is a legend at this football club,” said the Spurs boss.

We’ve selected some of the best pictures from Twitter to commemorate his farewell last night.
