Mystery over Defoe ahead of Bolton match

Unconfirmed reports suggest Spurs striker Jermain Defoe broke his foot in training on Friday, just 24 hours ahead of the Londoners' crucial Premier League tie at Bolton. Spurs will be looking for their second straight league win, having defeated Stoke on Tuesday night, but any injury to their in-form striker would be a cruel and massive blow to their chances. Defoe has scored three goals in four starts since he returned to White Hart Lane from Portsmouth earlier this month, and will be hoping to forge a strong partnership with Russian forward Roman Pavlyuchenko in the Tottenham attack. The club are yet to confirm or deny the reports through their official channels - will bring you confirmation of the story either way as soon as we get it.
