Portsmouth player claims Defoe and Johnson are leaving

Reserve right-back decides to unsettle his teammates and fans

Jermain Defoe and Glen Johnson

In case you weren’t aware, former Arsenal defender Lauren is still at Portsmouth and while he hasn’t started a league game since April, he is still available to perform the service of destablising everybody at the club.

Lauren was randomly selected by Spanish sports paper AS to give his opinion on Lassana Diarra’s proposed transfer to Real Madrid and the Cameroonian revealed that Diarra won’t be the only player leaving Fratton Park next month.

“The team is dismantling itself and big sides are coming. Diarra is not the only one, Defoe as well is returning to Tottenham, and Glen Johnson is leaving.

“The economic situation is very bad and we are aware of it. Look at the signings they made two years ago: they bought myself, Sol Campbell, Defoe, Pedro Mendes, who has moved to Rangers. Well, the majority of them are going to leave.”

Do you think Defoe would be right to move back to Spurs? Where would Johnson go? Will Tony Adams quit if Lauren’s claims are proven accurate? Help us answer all these questions with a comment below.
