Jenas transfer rumors
Whispers over the net from Spurs Odyssey, Spurs Community and FTL are hinting that Jermaine Jenas has handed in a transfer request today. This would come as something of a shock unless the Milan rumours are true or someone is making it worth his while to stick in a request and lose his loyalty bonuses.
If it is true the timing is awful just a week away from the start of the Premier League. As it is JJ and Palacious are by far and away our strongest central midfield partnership and the thought of only having Pud and O'Horror as cover is bad enough - the idea that it is Palacious partnered by the two mentioned would be a disaster as neither can really hack the Premier League. We really should be buying a central midfielder either to provide cover for JJ or as a replacement with JJ as cover. If this is true and he does go we will need two quality central midfielders before the window closes if we are to have a decent season.
JJ has his many faults and his many critics, most because we all know he has the strength, skill, pace and talent but we don't always see it. He is extremely fit and the only box to box midfield player we have at Tottenham currently. The idea that we suddenly need another two midfield players doesn't bare thinking about.
