Luka Modric transfer speculation will start again in January – Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe
Jermain Defoe has admitted that he expects speculation over the future of Luka Modric to continue in January.
Modric attracted attention from Chelsea throughout the summer and Spurs rejected a £40 million offer from the Stamford Bridge outfit to keep the Croatian at White Hart Lane. And although the player remains at Tottenham for now, Defoe believes that the club can expect more transfer talk concerning the playmaker in the New Year.
“There’s always speculation, it’s part and parcel of the game, and it will start again in January” Defoe told TalkSport . “We just wanted the window to close, and he’s here now and that’s that. He’s just got to be professional. You can’t go into games sulking because you’ll get found out and let the team down. “But Luka’s a good professional and, if you didn’t know there was speculation about him going and you saw him about the place, you’d never know.
“He’s been good. In pre-season, maybe other players would have said, ‘I’ve got an injury and I don’t want to play’, but he didn‘t do that and I don’t think there’s many players who would have done that. “Chelsea’s a massive club and there was an opportunity for him but it didn’t happen and now he’s got to get on with playing football because he’s a big player for us.”
