Spurs to send Jenas on loan to Championship.
Tottenham are ready to let Jermaine Jenas out on loan – at the second attempt.
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is keen for the midfielder to leave and get first-team action and has left the door open for him to quit White Hart Lane on that basis.
Jenas was due to join Sunderland before the window shut, with the deal for the rest of the season collapsing over ‘personal reasons.’
However Spurs are now actively looking to find a home for Jenas in the Championship when their Football League market re-opens at the weekend.

While the source claims that Jenas’ loan move to Sunderland broke down because of ‘personal reasons’, it is almost certainly because the Black Cats had already taken left-back Danny Rose on a season-long deal from north London and Premier League rules prevent two loanees joining from the same club.
Clearly, the midfielder – once an England squad regular – has no future at White Hart Lane under new head-coach Andre Villas-Boas but it is still hard to see the 29-year-old dropping down to the Championship.
Jenas has barely played in a year, after suffering a major injury at the beginning of last season whilst on loan at Aston Villa. Match fitness remains a priority but even in tip-top condition, the former Nottingham Forest man is likely to be behind Sandro, Scott Parker, Jake Liverpool, Glyfi Sigurdsson, Moussa Dembele and Tom Huddletsone in the pecking order in N17.
Still, if Jenas thinks a short stint – say 3 to 6 months – at a promising club in the second-tier can help him secure a January move to another Premier League outfit then he may well reluctantly agree to the switch. Watch this space.
