Cottagers eye ex-Toon ace.
Fulham are considering a bid for Tottenham’s forgotten midfielder Jermaine Jenas.
The Cottagers have money to spend this summer and boss Martin Jol is seeking midfield reinforcements. The Dutchman is resigned to losing Moussa Dembele before the start of the season, while doubts remain about 35-year-old Danny Murphy’s longevity.
Jol worked with former England ace Jenas at Spurs and has enquired about a cut-price deal for the 29-year-old.
Tottenham are currently without a manager and will wait until a new man is in place before deciding Jenas’ future but will demand at least £6 million for Jenas, who has 21 caps for England.
The former Newcastle midfielder was a regular in Tottenham’s first team two seasons ago but fell out of favour with then boss Harry Redknapp and was loaned out to Aston Villa before the start of last season.
In just his third appearance for the Villains, he suffered a ruptured achilles tendon which left him on the sidelines for six month.
Jenas is now back at Spurs awaiting the start of pre-season but, with Luka Modric, Sandro and Scott Parker at the club, the former Nottingham Forest trainee recognises that his first team chances are likely to be limited and is open to a move to Craven Cottage.
