The Republic of Ireland international has been regularly linked with a move away from the North London outfit, with Newcastle United, Manchester United and Arsenal all known to be admirers of the right back.
However, Carr has revealed his delight with Spurs' ambitious intentions of late, with the recent £7 million signing of striker Defoe from London rivals West Ham United likely causing him to rethink his future at the club.
"The Defoe signing is a clear testament to where the club wants to go, and that has got to be in Europe," Carr revealed.
"It is a great capture and for the sort of money you would only expect the top three or four clubs to be spending at the present time.
"To be honest, it surprised me more than a little, but hopefully it is the first big signing of many that will be made in the next transfer window and, if that is the case, things will look very bright at Tottenham."
