Also, they just fired AVB and the transfer isn't final yet. I'm gonna wait until it becomes final before I count my chickens. New coach comes in and wants to feature Defoe? Do you think he still comes to Toronto?

I was referring to the doubters saying we wouldn't get Defoe, even though the team is looking pretty solid right now.

This means Defoe is done but can't sign him till Jan, 1

http://www.sportsnet.ca/soccer/leiwe...with-signings/
“I also see the stories about a certain player in England,” Leiweke told The Canadian Press in an interview Wednesday. “Their (transfer) window doesn’t open up until Jan. 1.

“And so everyone can speculate we’re done. We couldn’t be done if we wanted do. We can’t sign, get deals and make deals binding until after the window opens up. So I think everyone needs to understand if they’re waiting for an announcement tomorrow, it’s not coming.

We'll see how this turns out. I love DeRo, but we all know about the way he and the team parted ways. Hopefully the conversation Leiweke and Tim B had with DeRo has rectified everything, and that it's true that DeRo wants to be here.

Hope he comes and looks at the Leafs when he's done with TFC.

^^ He is well aware of the situation, after all, he did bring Bernier to T.O. He might be a good evaluator of talent. This is what I hope.

I'm a big fan of it. About time we finally have someone who is passionate and his a vision.

TFC and the Leafs seem to be his "projects" so far.

I only hope the goof media and fans in this town don't run him out of town when success isn't seen immediately.

Your hope is misplaced in that case. He did no such thing.

He has connections. You think Nonis brought Bernier knowing Reims was our #1? Timmy vouched for Berns and got him thinking. Reimer will be traded eventually.

Right, he vouched for him and that's why we made the trade

I assumed the signing of Gilberto and the apparent done deal with Defoe, meant that we weren't getting Gilardino?

We're not getting Gilardino. That ship has sailed. He'll likely move to another team within Serie A.

There's no doubt that TL was the main reason why the Leafs got Bernier. He has contacts in L.A, very familiar with Bernier, and it wasn't until he got involved that the trade happened. Every team, including the Leafs, were calling about Bernier but TL made it happen very quickly because of his connections. This guy is the best thing to happen to MLSE, he makes Tom Anselmi seem like an amateur, imagine that guy still making decisions for not only TFC, but the Leafs and Raptors.

As a beleaguered STH in the supporters section since day one, I love the way this team is shaping up for next season. Finally, some genuine optimism regarding this franchise.

This has nothing to do with Lewieke, You are giving him to much credit for something he did not do, The Gilberto signing and bringing back Dero has nothing to do with Lewieke at all, Lewieke has no power or say in what players we bring in. you don't understand who Tim Bez is...

Toronto FC hope to make a formal announcement about Jermain Defoe’s transfer from Tottenham at the end of next week.

As previously reported by Sportsmail, the clubs have agreed a £6m deal with Defoe, 31, who is expected to join up with his new team-mates in March for the new MLS season.

He'll be under the direction of former Spurs teammate Ryan Nelson, who retired from playing at Queens Park Rangers this year to take up the Reds' manager job in Ontario, Canada

Also DeRo want's a 1 year contract with a player option for a 2nd year, TFC only want's to give him a 1 year deal, it's why hes not signed yet.

Now with the transfer window open, and a new manager with Tottenham, any developments on the Defoe front?

Not hearing anything at all Except for a few comments from Redknapp about a Defoe loan to QPR untill march, but everything still points hes coming to tfc

This is From Yesterday
Kristian Jack also just reported on TSN1050 that the Defoe deal is virtually done, and that he will immediately be loaned back to Spurs prior to reporting to TFC in time for the season opener in March.
