The Bournemouth striker has found first team opportunities limited this season and had been given permission by the Cherries to find another club.
Defoe, who played alongside Rangers boss Steven Gerrard for England and also shares the same agent, has been praised by Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe for his work ethic, despite only featuring eight times this season.
