Defoe extended his deal with Sunderland through 2019 on Thursday.
Defoe was an ironman for the Black Cats this season as he made 33 appearances including 28 starts. In those outings, the forward netted 15 goals on 83 total shots and was the leading scorer in the squad. Keeping the 33-year-old bodes well for a team that narrowly avoided relegation last season and could ill afford to lose one of their most talented players.
