Jermaine Jenas Admits Interest In Leaving Tottenham For Inter

The Spurs midfielder fuels rumours of a move to the Serie A champions...
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jermaine Jenas has admitted that a move to Italian giants Inter may interest him, according to News of the World.

The former Newcastle United man was apparently being tracked by Inter boss Jose Mourinho, who had reportedly expressed an interest in signing the central midfielder last summer and again in January.

However, a move never went through, and Mourinho instead signed Portsmouth's Sulley Muntari.

A move almost came about in January, when Inter loaned winger Ricardo Quaresma to Tottenham's London rivals Chelsea, and it was expected that Mourinho would replace the pacy Portuguese winger with Jenas.

The former Chelsea boss is reportedly keen to tie up a deal for the 26-year-old in the summer transfer window, and the Italian giants have received encouragement from the player himself.

"You take notice when Inter show an interest," claimed Jenas.

The former Nottingham Forest player has been at White Hart Lane since 2005, moving from St. James' Park in a deal worth around £9 million.

He has since played 112 Premier League games for the club, scoring 20 goals in the process, and has established himself as an integral part of the Spurs squad since manager Harry Redknapp's arrival earlier in the season from Portsmouth.
