Defoe signs Sunderland extension

Jermain Defoe has signed a contract extension with Sunderland.

The striker has agreed a new one-year extension which will keep him at the Stadium of Light until 2019.

Defoe joined Sunderland from Toronto FC in 2014 in a swap deal with Jozy Altidore and has since scored 22 goals in 53 appearances, with 18 of those goals coming last season.

“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," team manager Sam Allardyce said.

“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.”
