CONFIRMED: Sunderland striker signs new deal

Sunderland striker Jermaine Defoe has signed a new three-year deal at the Stadium of Light, to keep him at the club until 2019.

The striker scored an impressive 18-goals as he became an integral part of Sunderlands survival campaign last season, a survival that was double sweet by sending their bitter rivals Newcastle to the Championship.

Defoe moved to the North East of England after spells with Tottenham Hotspur, Portsmouth and well as MLS club, Toronto FC.

Upon signing the new contract,  Sam Allardyce said:

Jermain is one of the greatest goal-scorers in the history of the Premier League and is a player that every manager would want to have in their team.

He proved that beyond doubt last season by scoring 15 league goals, he is in fantastic physical condition and we are very pleased that we have been able to extend his stay with us.
