Spurs hero Nayim could rescue Zaragoza stay for Pennant

Tottenham hero Nayim could rescue Jermaine Pennant's career at Real Zaragoza.

The Daily Mail says Pennant recently insisted he was happy in Spain, but it has been reported that the club have offered the 26-year-old to Aston Villa in a bid to get him off the payroll.

It has now been suggested that Pennant has failed to grasp the language and still relies heavily on interpreter Diego Bengoa.

The former England Under 21 international is even said to need help with simple instructions during discussions on the training ground or in tactics meetings.

However, former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Nayim arrived as assistant to new boss Jose Aurelio Gay at Zaragoza, which could provide an English-speaking aide in the dressing room.
