Jermaine Jenas biography

Jermaine Anthony Jenas ( ; born 18 February 1983 in Nottingham) is an English people Association football who plays for Tottenham Hotspur F.C. in the Premier League. Jermaine Jenas is of mixed British African-Caribbean community and English people descent.

Club career

Nottingham Forest

Jenas began Jermaine Jenas career at Nottingham Forest F.C. where Jermaine Jenas immediately impressed during the 2001-02 in English football season. After a single season at the City Ground, which produced four goals in 33 games, Jenas was sold to Newcastle United F.C. for £5 million in February 2002.

Newcastle United

Despite an impressive first full season with Newcastle United F.C., in which Jermaine Jenas won the 2002–03 PFA Young Player of the Year award, Jenas failed to repeat Jermaine Jenas initial form with the club and Jermaine Jenas two subsequent seasons were disappointing considering Jermaine Jenas early promise. Known for Jermaine Jenas strong "box-to-box" play and ability to score from midfield, Jenas' last two years with Newcastle were marked by a series of inexplicably bland displays, but goals and energy started to dry up, leading to Jenas starting fewer games. Despite temporarily regaining Jermaine Jenas form and gaining the vice-captaincy under new manager Graeme Souness early in the 2004-05 in English football season, Jenas' form dipped again with only two goals in 48 appearances. Jermaine Jenas scored a total of 12 goals in 152 appearances for Newcastle United.

Tottenham Hotspur

Rumours of Jermaine Jenas unhappiness were confirmed early in the 2005-06 in English football season by manager Graeme Souness, when Jermaine Jenas revealed Jenas was not enjoying life at Newcastle, and the player reportedly compared life at the club to living 'in a goldfish bowl'. Jermaine Jenas was sold to Tottenham Hotspur F.C. on transfer deadline day of 31 August for an initial fee of £7 million,. Throughout the season, Jenas netted seven goals from midfield as Tottenham qualified for the UEFA Europa League. Jermaine Jenas marked Jermaine Jenas return from a 13-match absence through injury by scoring the second goal in Tottenham's 3–1 FA Cup fourth round win over Southend United F.C..

Jermaine Jenas signed a new five-year deal with Tottenham on 29 August 2007, keeping Jermaine Jenas at the club until 2012.
Under Juande Ramos, Jenas' form improved greatly and Jermaine Jenas initially produced occasional impressive performances, partly due to the new regime but also from some personal words of encouragement from the Spaniard. Jenas played in 1–1 draw and the 5–1 victory over rivals Arsenal in both legs of the semi-finals of the Football League Cup, scoring the opening goals in both matches. Jenas set up Jonathan Woodgate for the winning goal in the 2–1 2008 Football League Cup Final victory over Chelsea on 24 February 2008.

On 30 July 2008, Jenas added a one-year extension to Jermaine Jenas five-year contract, keeping Jermaine Jenas at Tottenham until 2013. A few days later, Jenas was named as Spurs' new vice-captain, following the departures of Robbie Keane and Paul Robinson (goalkeeper). In December on Boxing Day against Fulham, Jenas made Jermaine Jenas 100th league appearance for Tottenham. Jermaine Jenas scored the only goal in a 1–0 win over West Bromwich Albion F.C..

Aston Villa (loan)

On 31 August 2011, Jenas joined Aston Villa F.C. on a season loan deal from Tottenham Hotspur. Jenas wore the number 8 shirt at Villa, the same number Jermaine Jenas had while at Spurs. Jenas eventually made Jermaine Jenas debut for Aston Villa on 5 November 2011, after a series of niggling injuries, coming on as a second half substitute against Norwich City. Jenas then came on for Jermaine Jenas second appearance for Aston Villa, on 27 November 2011 against Swansea City, as a 69th minute substitute for Emile Heskey. On 3 December 2011, Jenas started Jermaine Jenas first game for Villa against Manchester United. Whilst playing Jermaine Jenas tripped on the Villa Park pitch and suffered a ruptured achilles injury which required surgery. The injury is set to keep Jermaine Jenas out of action for six months, meaning Jermaine Jenas loan with Villa came to a premature end after an injury troubled four months. Jermaine Jenas returned to Tottenham Hotspur, where Jermaine Jenas does not currently possess a squad number.

International career

Jenas has played internationally for England national football team from the Under-15 level right up to the senior team, where Jermaine Jenas made Jermaine Jenas debut against Australia national association football team on 12 February 2003. Despite struggling with injury towards the end of the 2005–06 season, Jermaine Jenas recovered sufficiently to be named in the 2006 FIFA World Cup squad. Jermaine Jenas improvement at Spurs earned Jermaine Jenas a call-up to the England squad for Fabio Capello's first game in charge, a exhibition game against Switzerland national football team at Wembley Stadium. Jenas scored the opening goal as England won 2-1.
