Place of birthBeckton

Weight66 kg
Height1.70 m
PositionForward

The fact that West Ham United signed him from Charlton Athletic when still a trainee for £400,000 spoke volumes about his potential, as did his loan spell with AFC Bournemouth when he equalled a Football League record for scoring in ten consecutive matches.

Jermain Defoe joined Tottenham Hotspur in February 2004 with a contract to June 2009. Bobby Zamora moved in the opposite direction in the same deal.

After a year at Portsmouth, he returned to Spurs in January 2009 with a contract to June 2014 that was extended to June 2015 in August 2012.

Arguably the most natural finisher of his generation, Jermain became a regular member of the England senior squad but struggled to establish a starting slot.

He joined Toronto FC in February 2014 with a contract to December 2017.

Jermain joined Sunderland in January 2015 with a contract to June 2018 that was extended to June 2019 in June 2016.

He joined AFC Bournemouth in June 2017 with a three-year contract.
