Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas could move on loan to Championship promotion hopefuls Leeds
Tottenham outcast Jermaine Jenas is reportedly a loan target for Leeds, as the midfielder looks to secure regular first team football.
The former England international has struggled to command a starting spot for Tottenham in recent seasons as a series of injuries have seen him fall down the pecking order at White Hart Lane.
The 29-year-old may have hoped for a clean slate under new boss Andre Villas-Boas but the arrivals of Mousa Dembele and Gylfi Sigurdsson, as well as the emergence of youngster Jake Livermore, mean Jenas' opportunities may once again be limited.
Jenas, who has only made one appearance this season as a substitute, saw a deadline day move to Sunderland break down and now Leeds are the latest side to show an interest.
Neil Warnock's team have found themselves short in midfield recently with Paul Green, David Norris and Michael Brown all struggling with injuries and the Leeds manager admits the emergency loan market is an option he will have to explore.
Warnock told the Yorkshire Post: “We are going to have to use it (the loan market) sensibly. If we lose two or three, we will have to do it, and that is what we are looking to do.
“We have asked about a couple of midfield players and we should know early this week because we need someone in there. We are looking at what there is around."
While the transfer window in England closes on August 31, the emergency loan window opens for football league clubs from September 8 until November 25.
Jenas moved on loan to Aston Villa last season but only made three appearances before getting injured.
The former Nottingham Forest player joined Tottenham in August 2005 and has 21 caps for England.
