Jermain Defoe is as enthusiastic as ever in pre-season.

The striker is firing on all cylinders at the Training Centre and looking forward to our first friendly action at Swindon on Tuesday week, July 16.

‘JD’ needs six more goals (in competitive football) to make it into the top five of the club’s all-time goalscoring list. He’s currently joint-seventh on 133, George Hunt is fifth on 138.

“I love my football and always look forward to pre-season,” said Jermain.

“I’ve worked hard over the summer. I’ve had a good rest as well, that’s important, but I feel really fit.

“I can’t wait for the first pre-season to come around and if I manage to score a few goals I can take that confidence into the new season.

“It’s great to be out there training again, seeing the lads and just having that challenge again of trying to achieve something.”
