Former England international uncertain over future - QPR to provide lifeline?


Jermain Defoe has refused to rule out a January move, with QPR reportedly interested in signing him.

Jermain Defoe has admitted that he is uncertain over his future with FC Toronto, opening the door for a Premier League return in January.

QPR are reportedly amongst the clubs interested in signing the front-man, as they feel he could offer something to their teams, with West Ham also an option given their previous interest.

Defoe has been playing in the MLS since the start of 2014, but he doesn't appear to have settled in too well at his Canadian club. 

Although his performances on the pitch, where he has scored 11 goals in 19 games, have not been too poor he has not endeared himself to the fan-base and he admits that he could be in-line for a return to his homeland in January. 

“I have never come out and said I want to leave a football club in my career, but I don’t know what the future holds for me,” London 24 quote Defoe as saying.

"I have never been too badly criticised in my career but this season has been tough."

“Social media is powerful and I see things from the fans, which I try not to read, but I am only human and I want them to like me."

“People over here don’t know me as well as people back home.”

If he does move back to the Premier League then he could make a value signing for any interested club.

Although Defoe is now 32-years-old, his predatory instincts still remain and to have such a fine finisher can be a help to any squad. 

QPR arguably need Defoe, an experienced and versatile striker, given their poor start to the season and struggles for goals, but a return to Upton Park may be the more appealing move, due to the Hammers' start to the campaign.
