EXCLUSIVE: JENAS JOINS R’S

JERMAINE JENAS has joined QPR from Tottenham Hotspur, signing an 18-month contract at Loftus Road.


The 29-year-old, who has won 21 England caps, returned from a loan spell with Nottingham Forest at the start of this month and is now looking forward to working with Harry Redknapp once again.


Jenas, who featured regularly at Spurs under the now-R’s boss, told www.qpr.co.uk: “I’m happy to be here.


“This is my third deadline-day move. It’s always frantic, but thankfully we’ve managed to get it done.”


Jenas revealed Redknapp being in charge at Loftus Road was a huge factor in his decision to join QPR, adding: “It’s great to be linking up with Harry again. Him being here was key to me making the move.


“I know what he brings as a manager and on a personal level, it’s an opportunity for me to play football.


 “It’s no secret I’ve had some injury problems in the last couple of years, but this is a great opportunity for me to play in the Premier League – and hopefully keep this club where they belong.”


Redknapp added: “I know JJ very well, I had him at Tottenham.


“I think he's a good player. He can get from box to box, he’s quick, strong and athletic.


“He’s a good lad with a great attitude. I’m sure he’ll be a big asset for us.”
