Jermain Defoe Net Worth $20 Million
Of Dominican and Saint Lucian ancestry, Jermain grew up in Canning Town, but once the family returned to Beckton, Jermain started playing five-a-side football at Newham Leisure Centre, and later became a part of the Sunday league team Senrab, also known for launching such stars as John Terry, Ashley Cole and Lee Bowyer, among others. Then when he turned 14, Jermain was subsidised by the Charlton Athletic soccer club and selected for the FA National School of Excellence at Lilleshall, Shropshire. During his stay there he also went to Idsall School.
Two years later Jermain turned professional, but instead of playing for Charlton, he joined West Ham United, while his former club was given compensation worth £1.4 million if Defoe reached a certain number of senior appearances. He made his debut the following year in the League Cup against Walsall, and scored. However, he was sent to Bournemouth for the rest of the season in order to get the experience needed for his future career. At the time, Bournemouth was playing in the Second Division, and Jermain was rather dominant, scoring ten goals in ten consecutive matches, finishing the season with 19 goals in 31 games. Upon his return to West Ham United, Jermain continued where he left off, and though serving as a substitute, he was the leading scorer in the team with 14 goals in the league and cup. He remained with West Ham United until the mid- 2003-2004 season, but following their relegation to First Division he demanded a transfer, refused by the club, which resulted in lack of respect and some poor play by Defoe, including three-times being sent off.
In February 2004, Jermain returned to the Premier League, joining Tottenham Hotspur in a deal worth £6 million, rising to £7 million depending on “specific performance criteria”, while Bobby Zamora was sent to West Ham. Reproducing good form, Jermain scored on his debut providing a victory for his team over Portsmouth. In his first year, Defoe played in 15 games and scored seven goals, which brought him a new contract with the Spurs, increasing his net worth to a large degree. He remained in Tottenham until the mid- 2007-08 season, when following the arrival of Darren Bent, he lost his starting position which resulted in a move to Portsmouth in January 2008, in a transfer worth £7.5 million. However, his stay in Portsmouth was relatively short, as he returned to Tottenham in January 2009, for a fee worth £15.75 million.
This time, Jermain remained at the club for the next six years, and subsequently became Tottenham’s fifth highest goalscorer in the history of the team, and the club’s highest goalscorer in European competitions. In the January 2014 transfer window, Jermain left Tottenham and English football to join Major League Soccer club Toronto FC, but failed to settle in the US, and after a year returned to England and signed with Sunderland.
He was one of best Sunderland players before the team was relegated to the Championship after the unsuccessful 2016-2017 season, whereupon Defoe demanded a transfer, and for the 2017-2018 season joined Bournemouth.
So far, he has scored 161 goals in the Premier League, which puts him on the seventh place on the all-time scorers list.
In addition to a successful club career, Jermain has also had success with the England national team; he made his debut in 2004, and until 2017 played in 57 games and scored 20 goals.
When it comes to his personal life, Jermain is currently single, but in the past has led quite an adventurous life, dating several celebrities, including Danielle Lloyd, Stephanie Moule, Imogen Thomas, Alexandra Burke and Anne-Marie Moore, with whom he has a son born in 2013.
Jermain is apparently a devout Christian, and had developed a friendship with terminally ill Bradley Lowery, who passed away on the 7th July 2017, being just six years old.
