JD back in squad

Harry Redknapp reports that Jermain Defoe is back in the squad for Saturday's north London derby at Arsenal.

The striker has been out since picking up an ankle injury on England duty back on September 7.

"Jermain has trained all week and will be in the squad," said Harry. "It's great to have him back.

"All the other lads have done well in his absence, we scored four goals last week against Blackburn and I thought Pav and Crouchy were outstanding.

"Jermain is a fantastic goalscorer and different to anyone else. He's sharp, great movement, great finisher.

"I certainly believe he would have had six or seven goals already this season - his record tells you that - and that can make a real difference in terms of points.

"But as I said, the other lads have done well and we're lucky, we've got four great strikers here."

Harry also revealed that Aaron Lennon could return after his hamstring injury.
