Jermaine Jenas says he is close to securing an 18-month deal to join QPR from Tottenham.

The 29-year old midfielder played under R's boss Harry Redknapp at Spurs.

"That's initially (what the deal will be)," he told Sky Sports.

"I am fit and ready to go, it's a top club and I am confident the manager can make sure the club stays up.

"I know Harry well, spent a lot of time with him at Tottenham and know him well enough.

"It's a top club, has some good players and not in that bad a position. They're four points off safety and can definitely claw that back."
