Tottenham sold Michael Carrick to Manchester United for £15million this weekend, but Martin Jol says he is looking to buy … not sell … and any interest in Defoe will be waved away.


The London press were quick to put Newcastle at the head of the queue after Ferguson copped out, but Defoe is staying at White Hart Lane.


The north London club made a profit of just over £12million on Carrick and already have Ivory Coast international Didier Zokora as a ready-made replacement.


Martin Jol, who failed to hide his disappointment at Carrick’s decision to walk out on the club, says Newcastle will not be so lucky.
