Bournemouth reported to be offering him £115k per week, 3 year contract! Surely agent nonsense.

Maybe, but then he's a striker that guarantees you goals so £18m over 3 years isn't actually as bad as it might sound in this day and age. All it needs is for his goals to contribute to finishing 3 places higher in the league and he's paid for himself.

Defoe made his name at Bournemouth all those years ago. I can imagine them offering silly money and blowing everyone else out of the water, he's exactly what they need over the next couple of seasons.

True. I think he will have another good season next year but given he turns 35 in October his age will surely catch up with him in years 2 and 3 on that contract.

Yeah, not worth that at this point in his career in my opinion. But we'll see.

Three year contract would take him to the age of 37!

Don't believe that. Bournemouth refuse to pay over 50k a week for a player, it's why Matt Ritchie left.

I would agree in part, especially when you take the fact that there is no transfer fee into the equation as well.

I think my surprise is not based around the weekly wage, but more the length of the contract, given his age at present. Or rather all three bits together - the amount, the length and his age.

He may have scored goals for the last few seasons, but the fact is that he is in his mid 30s already, and 3 years takes him to a few months shy of being 38. Footballers sometimes just hit a point where they stop producing the quality they previously did, and if you end up with Defoe on a three year deal at £100k+ a week, and not scoring any goals, that is some expensive baggage in your wage bill.

Some kind of performance related deal, maybe in the later years of the contract, would be a far more sensible option IMO, as I protects the club if there is a drop off in his contribution. Or even an option on the third year, based on the performance in the second.

His 3-4 year deal at Sunderland included he could leave on a free if they were relegated.

If we're keen, we could consider something similar, because his resale value won't be that much anyway, should this occur. But it would be important for us to reduce our wage bill quickly if we did go down and therefore removing the liability of Defoe's salary would be wise at that point.

£100k a week, plus £6m signing on fee, plus a seven figure fee for his agent? Figures quoted in the press this morning. If true they are having a laugh, much better long term options elsewhere with decent sell on opportunities too I am sure.

£6m signing on fee......so from the point of view of the buying club, he's not available on a 'free' after all. It's just that the fee goes to him and his agent, rather than Sunderland?

If the newspaper talk is accurate, then I'd be a no for Defoe. I was interested, despite his age, because I think he'd be a good fit. But there's a tipping point beyond which we shouldn't go....plenty more younger fish in the sea.

A £6m signing on fee then £115k a week for three years...that's the equivalent of paying him over £153k a week, for three years, into his late-thirties, with no transfer fee but equally zero resale value or opportunity. Pass.

I'd rather us try and find some young players - our squad is pretty old anyway and we've got very little coming up from the academy. Wages are getting a bit ridiculous too.

Roughly £23m for him altogether for that contact, he isn't worth a 1/5th of that.
