Carew to Spurs and Jenas to Aston Villa: It's rumour time

Take this which ever way you want to take it but a rumour doing the rounds is that Harry Redknapp is interested in John Carew and that Martin O'Neill is interested in Jermaine Jenas.

We have to accept that this is probably pure speculation but we know big John likes the bright lights and they don't get any brighter than London and at the same time there is talk that Jenas isn't what Redknapp wants in the middle of the park.


There was also something on the Telegraph website this morning, but they did get it from The Mirror but you know I don't like linking to them.

The part that sort of makes it unbelievable is from the Metro and is below. How could Martin O'Neill even be considering letting Carew go because he has Heskey coming back?

The talk is that David Moyes is also interested in Jenas but that Martin O'Neill has pencilled his name in next to the big white space on his whiteboard, that would be free if Gareth Barry does leave this summer.

Either way, this is pure 100% speculation but if I had to give it a score, I'd give it a two. There is every chance John Carew would like a move to London and there is every chance Jenas will be leaving in the summer; I just can't see it going like this, not this easily anyway.
