TORONTO - It's official. Again.

English striker Jermain Defoe is on his way to Toronto, a release from his former club, Tottenham Hotspur, confirmed Friday.

This after the Toronto Sun confirmed the deal back in Mid-December and Toronto FC recently began a Defoe marketing campaign in advance of Monday's official unveiling in downtown Toronto.

"Everybody knows how much this club means to me and I will play my heart out for the team and the fans until my last kick for the club," the 32-year-old Defoe said in a statement. "I have had a fantastic time here and the fans have always been amazing to me."
