Former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas has said that he would be ready to commit his future to championship outfit QPR after managing to impress in the last few months of the campaign. QPR were relegated to the championship last season.
After fighting for an automatic promotion spot for most of the campaign, they have been slowly slipping down the table in recent weeks. Manager Harry Redknapp is under intense pressure to get the club back into the Premier league. However, the incredibly wage bill at the club may force him to sell a number of players if they do not get promoted this campaign.
Even if they are not promoter, it looks like they will be able to bank on the experience of midfielder Jenas, who has revealed that he is ready to sign a new contract with the club. It is highly unlikely that he will be offered excessive wages at a club, which is already on the verge of being given a £ 60 million penalty by the FA for spending too much money. However, it does offer the player a great opportunity to rediscover his potential. He has suffered from numerous injury problems in recent years and he has been at several loan spells.
“Would I like to stay? Yeah, definitely. QPR took a chance on me when I ruptured my Achilles, and we’ll hopefully talk at the end of the season about a new contract. There’s a few of us in the same situation, and we’re fighting tooth and nail to get the club back in the Premier League. On a personal level I’ve been happy with my performances, but I came at a tough time when we were bottom of the league. It’s been a weird topsy-turvy experience, but I’ve enjoyed it,” said the 31-year-old.
