England striker Jermain Defoe will rejoin Tottenham Hotspur from Portsmouth after the Premier League clubs agreed a fee on Tuesday.
Tottenham said on their website (www.tottenhamhotspur.com) Defoe, who spent four years at White Hart Lane before moving to Portsmouth for 7.5 million pounds a year ago, had agreed personal terms for the move, which is subject to a medical.
He will be presented to home fans before Tuesday night's League Cup semi-final, first leg against Burnley, Tottenham said.
No transfer fee was given by either club for the move but local media speculated that Spurs would be paying around 15 million pounds ($21.86 million).
Defoe's move links him for the third time with Spurs manager Harry Redknapp, who took him to Portsmouth last season having been his boss at West Ham United where the 26-year-old began his professional career.
Defoe, who scored 17 goals in 36 games for Portsmouth, has played 32 times for England, many of them substitute appearances, and scored six goals.
