TORONTO - Toronto FC has got its man and will unveil England striker Jermain Defoe next Monday.

A source confirmed the deal with the Tottenham player is done.

Attempts to reach a Toronto FC spokesman were not immediately successful Wednesday.

But the MLS team released two short videos titled "It's Bloody Big Deal!" Parts 1 and 2. Both show a man — one sitting in a dinner and presumably watching TV, the other reading a newspaper — spitting out their coffee in seeming shock.

The words "It's a Bloody Big Deal" along with next Monday's date and the MLS club's logo, are shown at the end of the videos.

Toronto manager Ryan Nelsen played with Defoe at Tottenham and a megabucks deals to reunite the two in the MLS has been rumoured for months.
