Defoe has Spurs future - Villas Boas

Tottenham manager Andre Villas Boas is confident that striker Jermain Defoe will stay at the club, after talks with the England international's agent.

Villas Boas also says that he and other Premier League managers were in favour of closing the transfer window before the start of the season, and had discussed such a move at their pre-season meeting.

The 34-year old Portuguese says that closing the window before the season would allow him and his team to "focus on what we have to do".
