Jenas: Five-year deal
Jermaine Jenas has signed a new five-year contract to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.
A £7million capture from Newcastle United two years ago, the midfielder has made an impressive start to the new season.
Jenas, who has scored 16 goals in 70 appearances for Spurs, is now tied to White Hart Lane until 2012.
And the 24-year-old admits he would have no qualms in seeing out the rest of his career with Tottenham.
"This club has the calibre of squad that any player would want to be part of," Jenas told the club's official website.
"The spirit in the squad is terrific, the club is ambitious and undoubtedly moving forward.
"I feel I still have a lot of potential to develop further and playing alongside team-mates of this quality will help me do that.
"I am very happy here and would love to stay at Tottenham for the rest of my career."
Spurs boss Martin Jol has praised Jenas' impact in North London and believes the 'sky is the limit' for the former Nottingham Forest youngster.
Jol said: "JJ has made a big contribution over the last two seasons and he is improving as a player all the time. His goals from midfield are a vital ingredient for us and he is already off the mark this season.
"I am delighted he has committed his future to the club because JJ has so much talent and is such a positive player.
"He always wants to learn and that is the right mentality to have, he wants to prove that he is a top player and the sky is the limit for him."
