It’s a Bloody Big Deal! Toronto Drop Video Hint About Jermain Defoe Deal

Toronto FC have got a big announcement in the pipeline, and apparently they want the whole world to know it. On Wednesday, the MLS club released a video promo touting a club announcement on January 14, proclaiming it "a bloody big deal." Couple the unmistakably British phrase with the video's content—a typical "geezer" in what appears to be a London cafe (no accent), spitting out his mug of tea in surprise—and it is difficult to escape the conclusion that this video is touting the signing of Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe, who has long been linked with the Canadian club. Considering that the deal has been discussed in papers and media outlets on both sides of the Atlantic for a number of months now, whether anyone will be as surprised as the bloke in the video when the announcement is finally made official remains to be seen. Can confirm Jermain Defoe is expected to arrive in Canada this weekend to complete his transfer to @torontofc from Tottenham #MLS — Luke Wileman (@LukeWileman) January 8, 2014 Defoe is believed to be heading to Toronto this weekend, ahead of the "mystery" announcement on Monday.Read more MLS news on
