First Premier League star to visit G-A-Y since Jamie Redknapp in 1997

Football star Jermain Defoe proved his dedication to new girlfriend Alexandra Burke this weekend by travelling hundreds of miles to see her in concert.

The Spurs striker jumped on a train to London straight after his team’s defeat against Everton and headed straight to G-A-Y to watch Alexandra, 23, with his family.

‘After the show was over they met up in the VIP area and were all over each other,’ a source tells The Sun.

‘They didn’t care who saw.’

Alexandra and Jermain are yet to confirm their romance and last month she was still gushing to Now’s Dan Wootton about R&B singer Marques Anthony.

The X Factor 2008 winner said they were long distance dating and even admitted she wants to get married soon. 

But it seems she’s moved on – and has a different spouse in her sights.

‘Everyone go out & buy my girl @alexandramusic ‘s new single! Out TODAY! RT #Elephant,’ Tweets Jermain, 29.

Alexandra then Re-tweets the post but adds:
