Jermaine Jenas: Has rejoined Harry Redknapp at QPR

It is Redknapp's second signing of deadline day after completing the record signing of Chris Samba earlier in the day

Jenas joined Tottenham from Newcastle in 2005 for a fee of £7million and went on to make over 200 appearances for the North London club before falling out of favour.

A season long loan at Aston Villa during 2011/12 was cut short by a serious Achilles injury that kept him out for six months but despite a change of managers at White Hart Lane he could still only manage one appearance under Andre Villas Boas.

The 29-year old was sent out on loan to his first club Nottingham Forest in September and made six appearances.

He will now be hoping to revive his career with a move across London to help QPR's fight for survival.

And he admitted linking up with Harry Redknapp was a big persuasive factor in his move to West London.

He said: "Obviously the fact that Harry was here made a big difference. He knows me well as a player.

"There's a big challenge ahead and I want to be a part of it. There's no time to waste, we need to hit the ground running and get the wins, starting on Saturday."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
