Jermain Defoe is staying put. Adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged Hombre . Toronto FC has rejected multiple transfer bids to send the striker back to the England, meaning the 31-year-old Defoe will finish the MLS season in Toronto. "We received a record transfer offer for Jermain Defoe," said Toronto FC GM Tim Bezbatchenko. "We have declined that offer." "The offer was a record for the club and (close to) the highest offer ever received for MLS but we are committed to our fans and declined it." London-based Queens Park Rangers were believed to be one of the clubs interested in adding Defoe prior to the closing of the European transfer window at 5pm et. QPR manager Harry Redknapp confirmed to BBC Radio 5 Live that the club made a big effort to complete the signing. Defoe, who signed a four-year deal with TFC in January, is the clubs leading scorer for 2014. He has netted 11 goals in 16 league games with the team, good for a share of fifth in the MLS scorers table. "We have a committed player," said Bezbatchenko. "He was frustrated with the course of our team, no doubt. That was one of the reasons we made the (Nelsen) change" The 31-year-old Defoe has battled injuries this season and has missed four of the clubs last five games nursing a groin injury. "We love having Jermain here," said Bezbatchenko. "He has symptoms to a sports hernia & rehabbing. In the next couple of weeks we will see if he needs surgery." The club used Defoe as the anchor of a large-scale marketing campaign to promote its revamped roster heading into the 2014 season. The team labeled the addition of Defoe from BPL club Tottenham Hotspur “A bloody big deal”.  "I want to say that this is new to everyone in Toronto, its part of being a big club, being in the mix with big clubs. Its new for us," said Bezbatchenko. "Its important people know we are comfortable with this and having other clubs ask for our players." The news comes amidst a turbulent month for the club. On Aug. 21 Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment CEO Tim Leiweke announced he would be leaving the organization within one year. Leiweke, who was billed as the architect of a new future for many of Torontos sports franchises was one of the driving forces behind FCs 2014 revamp that saw Defoe come to town along with U.S. international Michael Bradley and the early-season loan of Brazilian netminder Julio Cesar. Then, on Sunday, head coach Ryan Nelsen was dismissed along with five assistant coaches. Nelsens dismissal came a day after he publicly criticized general manager Tim Bezbatchenko for calling out the team prior to a 3-0 Saturday loss to New England. Bezbatchenko responded the next day by firing Nelsen and his lieutenants and appointing Academy Director Greg Vanney as the ninth head coach in club history. With the news of Nelsens dismissal, however, came rumours that Defoe could be the next to go. Bezbatchenko admitted in a press conference that the club was considering an offer for their top scorer. While he would not get into details at that conference, he would elaborate afterwards to TSN soccer analysy Kristian Jack. “We are in regular contact with QPR and with Jermain and were figuring out whats best for both the player and for TFC," he told Jack in a 1-on-1 following Vanneys introduction. "He has over-delivered [on my expectations],” Bezbatchenko said of Defoes 2014 performance so far. “Hes been a consummate professional.” He added that any move made to send Defoe out of Toronto would be done only in the best interests of both the player and the club.
