With all the controversy of the so called' Tevez affair' can anyone explain to me why Tottenham have been allowed to break Premier League rule L19, to my knowledge, twice in this transfer window.

The rule states that no player can rejoin his former club within 12 months of leaving. Defoe and Keane both have.

One rule for one one for another or what?
