Popular striker is now in the club's all-time top 10 goalscorers.Jermain took his tally to 118 goals with 17 in 2011-12 and his goal in the final-day victory over Fulham handed him the number 10 spot on our all-time list.
He actually scored 11 goals in 11 Premier League starts, with 25 league appearances in total in 2011-12.
JD then joined the England squad for another major tournament, Euro 2012, but found playing time limited in Poland and Ukraine.
Jermain became only the 16th player in the club's history to score 100 goals for Spurs when he hit a screamer against West Brom at the Lane in April, 2011.
But he admitted 2010-11 was a frustrating season as he scored only four goals in the Premier League in a total of nine from 30 appearances in all competitions having been sidelined for three months after sustaining an ankle injury on England duty in September, 2010.
Our top-scorer in 2009-10, Jermain made history during that season before joining an elite Spurs club by scoring for England at the World Cup Finals in June.
Jermain became only the third player in Premier League history to score five goals in a match when he achieved the feat in the 9-1 mauling of Wigan in November.
Indeed, he was only the second Spurs to bag five in a top-flight match after Alfie Stokes all the way back in 1957.
That was the highlight of a season where he scored 24 goals in all competitions, helping fire us to fourth place in the Premier League.
That form took him to the World Cup and his winner against Slovenia marked only the sixth time a Spurs player has achieved the feat on World Cup duty for England - following in the footsteps of Jimmy Greaves, Martin Peters, Alan Mullery, Gary Lineker and Darren Anderton.
JD scored three hat-tricks in the season and was on fire from the start, bagging a trio at Hull in August. Those were his first three goal of the season and his last helped us beat Chelsea in April.
The popular striker rejoined the Club in January, 2009 following a successful year at Portsmouth.
The England international had made 177 appearances in our colours in all competitions during his first spell at the Club between January 2004 and January 2008, during which time he scored 64 goals following his switch from West Ham United.
After his spell on the South Coast reaped nine goals in 24 games, JD settled straight back in to life at The Lane with three goals in his first five games.
But a foot injury picked up in late January wrecked the rest of his 2008-09 season and forced him out until mid-April.
Jermain did, however, feature another five times before the season was out, scoring one more goal.
The former Charlton trainee began his professional career at West Ham before embarking on a season-long loan spell at Bournemouth, where he scored 19 goals in 31 appearances before returning to London and clocking up 105 games and 41 goals for West Ham.
He earned his first senior England call-up for a friendly against Sweden in March 2004 and has since gone on to establish himself as a regular international.
