TORONTO - Jermain Defoe is staying put with Toronto FC after the MLS team turned down several transfer offers, including a club-record bid, for the England striker.
But questions remain whether Defoe wants to continue in a Toronto uniform.
General manager Tim Bezbatchenko, who spoke to Defoe earlier in the day, told reporters in a conference call Monday that his star forward wanted to remain in Toronto.
"He's committed," he said.
But Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp told a different story.
