Forest, where Jenas began his career and rose through the youth ranks to the first team, have revived talks about a loan move for the 29-year-old. The Championship club may even have Jenas in their ranks in time for Sunday's clash against East Midlands rivals Derby if a deal can be ironed out, with other clubs also interested in the one-time England international.
Forest are thought to be in the driving seat though, with the player himself particularly keen on a return to the club where he cut his teeth as a youngster after coming through the youth set-up under former Forest boss Paul Hart.
Talks had been held over a loan move back in the summer but they fell through. Jenas, who Forest sold to Newcastle for £5million as a teenager in 2002, was named in Tottenham's 25-man Premier League squad last month. He has been a peripheral figure at White Hart Lane in recent years though, with fitness problems meaning he last started a match for Spurs in April 2011. A loan spell at Aston Villa was cut short last year after he suffered a season-ending Achilles injury.
