Queens Park Rangers boss Neil Warnock has launched an ambitious bid to sign Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jermaine Jenas on a season-long loan according to The Sun.
Following Tony Fernandes' takeover at Loftus Road, Warnock is looking to complete a number of deals in a race against the clock before the transfer window slams shut next week, and has started by reviving his interest in Jenas.
The 28-year-old Spurs star hasn't featured for Harry Redknapp's first-team since April 2, and would be open to a move away from White Hart Lane in search of regular football.
Rangers are proposing to take the former England international on loan for the season, with the view to completing a £5million permanent deal should they avoid relegation, but Warnock is finding it difficult to conclude any business.
"It's all right having money and making offers but getting them to sign and move on with you is a different ball game," he said. "In 10 days, I've got to do 12 weeks' work.
"In an ideal world, we've always done it early. It wasn't possible and we've just got to try to grasp this opportunity and strengthen the squad to give us a chance up to Christmas."
Another Tottenham player looking to be on his way out of White Hart Lane is £12million man Wilson Palacios - who is set to complete a move to Stoke City in the coming days.
Redknapp is still hoping to complete deals for Lassana Diarra and Emmanuel Adebayor, and has also today expressed an interest in bringing want-away Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole to north London to help aid Spurs in their quest for Champions League qualification in 2011-12.
