Transfer news: Jermain Defoe does not want Luka Modric to leave Spurs
England goal hero Jermain Defoe admits it will be a big blow for Tottenham to lose the services of Luka Modric, who is believed to be edging closer to a move to Real Madrid.
The Croatian international is reported to be the subject of a £30million plus bid from the Spanish giants, with a deal poised to be tied up in the next 48 hours.
Modric, who has four years left of his contract, is currently training with the reserves at White Hart Lane.
Defoe, who scored England’s winner against Italy in Berne last night, said: “Luka is a fantastic player. A lot has gone on. As players we don’t know what’s gone on.
“He’s been at the club - and he’s been good for the club to be honest. If he does end up going, for us it is hard to lose someone like that.
“But, for him, I would say good luck to him because he’s a fantastic player.”
