It was a busy old night down at the Lane on transfer deadline day with 3 players leaving the club and Gilberto joining.
No doubt the biggest move out of Spurs was that of Jermain Defoe who moved to Portsmouth for a fee thought to be in the region of 8million pounds. Defoe was a big favorite with the fans at White Hart Lane and it's highly disappointing to see the England striker leave but with only 18 months left on his contract perhaps the time was right to cash in.
Other departures from Spurs last night saw Anthony Gardner join Everton on loan and Paul Stalteri move to Fulham also on loan.
Wayne Routledge had earlier left the club to join Martin O'Neill at Aston Villa.
