Spurs midfielder in Villa link
Aston Villa are being linked with a £7million move for out-of-favour Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas.
The Villa boss is desperate for new faces in midfield following Gareth Barry's switch to Manchester City and Stilian Petrov's shoulder injury, which may force him to miss the start of the season.
Spurs are thought to be willing to let Jenas leave as boss Harry Redknapp continues to rebuild the team at White Hart Lane, though it has been reported Tottenham value Jenas at around £10m.
O'Neill is now set to turn to Jenas after seeing two bids for Leeds United youngster Fabian Delph fail and a move for Middlesbrough's Tuncay Sanli thwarted by the player's wage demands.
