Jermain preaches loyalty…

Interesting column from soon-to-be Champions League star Jermain Defoe in the Daily Mirror last week. JD wrote that it would be a mistake to sell Carlton Cole:

"Worse still, they could end up replacing Carlton Cole with the type of player who does not have the same affinity for the Hammers that he has. West Ham are a family club with fantastic fans who pay good money and appreciate it when you work hard. That's why they have taken the young plyers such as Jack Collison, James Tomkins and Mark Noble to their hearts. They love the club, they understand the culture and the supporters. They have come through the ranks and they will be gutted to leave if that ends up being the case."

Could this by any chance be the same Defoe who handed in a transfer request within 24 hours of the Hammers being relegated in 2003?
