Tottenham Hotspur are set to loan Jermaine Jenas out to Juventus - report

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jermaine Jenas is close to completing a shock loan deal to Serie A giants Juventus.

The England international is finding it difficult to break into Spurs manager Harry Redknapp’s starting XI and could have more trouble if Tottenham add some more players before the transfer window closes.

Jenas is keen to make the switch to Italy as Juventus boss Luigi Del Neri is offering the 27-year-old a chance to join one of Europe’s most historic clubs, according to The Mirror.

The former vice-captain of Spurs has been tipped to leave White Hart Lane for over a year, but no move has ever come about.

However, the Turin giants are now seen as the favourites to get Jenas on loan, with the move possibly becoming a permanent one at the end of his spell in Italy.

The representatives of Jenas were negotiating the terms of the deal and it is possible that a deal could be announced soon.
