Portsmouth willing to consider bids for Defoe

Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie has confirmed that his club is willing to listen to any bids for striker Jermain Defoe, who recently has been the center of attention of both Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa.

However, Storrie added that only a major bid would have a chance of succeeding. Pompey signed Defoe from Spurs for 7 million Pounds last January, but a fee thrice that amount was mentioned in British media on Tuesday.

“We have had a tentative enquiry about Jermain and told the club concerned he was not for sale unless it was for a very, very big offer,” Storrie told reporters.

Defoe, 26 years old, player for West Ham United and Tottenham before joining Portsmouth a year ago. The player himself has expressed an interest in a Tottenham return, to join up with former Portsmouth manager Redknapp.
