JD's back!

Jermain Defoe is back in the squad to face Sunderland on Saturday.

Our top scorer with 23 goals in all competitions this term - his best total for a season - is fit again after picking up a hamstring injury three weeks ago.

JD hasn't played since bagging his 17th goal in the Premier League against Blackburn on March 13 and has missed the games against Stoke, Fulham in the FA Cup and Portsmouth last weekend.

"Jermain's fit and he's available for Sunderland," reported Harry Redknapp at Friday morning's media briefing at Spurs Lodge.

"He's trained a couple of days this week. I don't need to take a chance with him and if he was any doubt at all, I wouldn't risk him because I've got Pav (Roman Pavlyuchenko), Crouchy (Peter Crouch) and Eidur (Gudjohnsen) all in good form.

"But he's available, he's in the squad and we'll see how he feels after training."

COMING SOON - We'll have full team news on the website soon and highlights from Harry's press conference on Spurs TV Online and the official Spurs App for iTouch/iPhone...
