After five years at the club surely it’s time that Tottenham gave up on Jermaine Jenas?
The 27-year-old midfielder joined the club from Newcastle United for an initial fee of £7m but Spurs have struggled to get the best out of him and he has found himself in and out of the side. In the rare moments that he does play he often gets a lot of flak from fans due to his frustrating inconsistency.
Jenas who has made 23 appearances for Spurs this season is well down in the pecking order as Tom Huddlestone has now established himself as the club’s first choice central midfielder. With the impending arrival of Brazilian midfielder Sandro and Wilson Palacios to also contend with, a summer departure looks very much on the cards.
Although he has shown glimpses since his move from Newcastle, which has led to him being named by every England manager including Fabio Capello’s first ever England squad. But these moments have been too few and far between, and he is one of the most inconsistent players to pull on a Tottenham shirt. Unfortunately no Tottenham or England manager has ever been able to get the best from Jenas on a weekly basis and hence why he has become a source of frustration with some supporters.
The Nottingham-born player is undoubtedly talented, and if he were to move to a club that is better suited to the way he plays then he could look to salvage his career and look to finally fulfil his potential and promise. I do sense that Tottenham and Jenas are now going in separate directions and perhaps a parting of the ways will be the best for both parties this summer.
Is it time Tottenham cashed in on JJ, or does he still have a part to play at WHL?
