10:49 AM ET 10.27 | Toronto FC's top brass "planted a seed" on their most recent European recruiting trip. MLSE president and CEO Tim Leiweke told a group of supporters last month that TFC has been approved to spend a dump truck full of cash -- $26 million to be exact. But, according to sources, it appears the club might need to swap the truck for an entire armoured car of large bills. The Toronto Sun has learned from multiple sources that Tottenham Hotspur attacker Jermain Defoe is at the top of TFC's off-season wish list. The 31-year-old, a one-time teammate of current TFC bench boss Ryan Nelsen, could demand a salary as high as $5 million a season.
