‘Name your price’ for England midfielder

Aston Villa boss Gerard Houllier has turned his attention to Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jermaine Jenas, asking Spurs to ‘name their price’ for the 27-year-old England international.

As the Midlands club continue their foray into the transfer market in a bid to prolong the side’s recent revival and move up the Barclays Premier League table, Jenas has been targeted by Houllier to add depth to his central midfield options.

Villa have long admired Jenas, who has been at Spurs for five and a half years after his £7m move from Newcastle United.

And the former Nottingham Forest player still has two and a half years to run on his current deal so manager Harry Redknapp will not be under any pressure to sell.

But with a surplus of midfielders on the books at White Hart Lane and with the recent arrival of Steven Pienaar, a January move to Villa Park could be on the cards for Jenas.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will surely be looking to make a profit on the player, and while no fee has yet been agreed, SunSport reports that Aston Villa will be required to part with at least £10million.

Having disappointed in the league so far this season, Villa fans will be hopeful of securing this transfer after the club have all but given up on their pursuit of want-away Blackpool midfielder Charlie Adam who looks set to move to Liverpool.
