Nottingham Forest have struck a deal to keep Jermaine Jenas until the New Year.

The Tottenham midfielder has spent the past month on loan at his first club and scored in Saturday's 4-1 win at Barnsley.

And Spurs have sanctioned an extension which will allow Jenas to remain at the City Ground until 2 January.

He told the club website: "I'm absolutely delighted, it's exactly what I wanted and we've managed to get it done. I made it clear to the manager at the beginning that I wanted to extend the loan if possible.

"There's a real buzz around here, we've got a good bunch of players and the staff are very professional and thorough in what they do."

Jenas has so far been restricted to four substitute appearances, but manager Sean O'Driscoll said: "Every time he's come on he's made a difference - he's given us that little bit of Premier League class.

"It was an easy decision really and we'll monitor the situation as it goes on. This is obviously a squad game and we want ours to be as strong as possible - he'll be a useful addition to that."
