Jermain Defoe to sign for Sunderland on £70000-a-week deal
Jermain Defoe is training with Sunderland at their Academy of Light base on Wednesday after agreeing a three-and-a-half-year deal with the club.
Toronto FC is selling striker Jermaine Defoe to Sunderland AFC of the Barclays Premier League, with US international Jozy Altidore and cash coming back to the Reds.
The part-exchange deal understood to be worth in the region of £70,000 a week.
Defoe was the focal point of the TFC’s $100M investment into the club last winter, a move that failed to improve the club into a playoff team.
