Kyle Walker posted a Twitter message where he is pictured with Jermain Defoe – and Tottenham fans on Twitter want their former striker to return to the club.

The 34-year-old has been a prolific goalscorer throughout his career, scoring an impressive 158 goals in the Premier League, including 139 strikes for Spurs in all competitions.

Defoe was recently recalled back into the England set-up with manager Gareth Southgate keen to use him for the international fixtures against Germany and Lithuania.

The Three Lions will travel to Dortmund for an international friendly on Wednesday night which will be followed up by a World Cup qualifier at Wembley.

Sunderland striker Defoe is one of three England forwards in the squad, with Jamie Vardy and Manchester United youngster Marcus Rashford the other picks.

However, when Walker posted a picture with Defoe and his Spurs teammate Dele Alli, the White Hart Lane faithful were quick to tell him to make a return to the club.

Many supporters urged the London-born player to return home with one fan believing that manager Mauricio Pochettino made a mistake in selling him.

Another fan joked with midfielder Alli by asking if he could smuggle the experienced striker back to White Hart Lane.

Defoe has been in red hot form this term, despite David Moyes’ side sitting bottom of the Premier League table.

He has played 28 Premier League games for the north east club, scoring 14 goals, therefore, it is not a surprise that Tottenham fans want him to come back.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
