FUT Captains has been released!... this has nothing to do with Jermain Defoe's Premium SBC, but is certainly good to know.

Jermain Defoe Premium SBC Summary

The special Jermain Defoe Premium SBC in Ultimate Team expires on April 24. So until then you should definitely complete the challenge if you don't want to miss the huge upgrade of the Englishman. And his upgrade actually is huge, if you compare his new stats with those of his silver card. Just have a look at the overview here:

Jermain Defoe never had such awesome looking stats before! We think it's a fantastic decision that EA Sports gives strong upgrades to FIFA 22 players who usually are not that playable anymore, so that there is more variety in team building. Speaking of team building... it's best to link Jermain Defoe with one of the English Icons, otherwise it will be rather difficult to include him in your squad. Don't miss out on a striker with 4* skills, 4* WF and "Lean" as body type.
