Fulham are ready to pounce for Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas.

The People says Martin Jol's predecessor Mark Hughes was keen to sign the £8million-rated England man, one of several players who will be allowed to leave White Hart Lane this summer if the price is right.

Jol signed Jenas for Spurs from Newcastle back in 2005. Yet he hardly thrived under Jol, with the England player's fortunes improving once Juande Ramos replaced the Dutchman.

But Jol is aware that Fulham need to add some midfield creativity and knows 28-year-old Jenas is a player Fulham could afford.
