Nottingham Forest manager
Paul Hart has dismissed talk of midfielder Jermaine Jenas moving to
Tyneside. He said that they were just speculation on the media's part.
"It's just not true. It's total and utter tripe.", he said.
Jenas's agent Robert Mateusiewicz confirmed
on Monday that there has been contact between The Magpies and Forest
over a possible deal but Newcastle also moved to distance themselves
from the reports that the player was already on Tyneside.
Jenas signed a new five-year deal at Forest at the beginning of the
season but due to the financial restrictions currently in place at the
First Division club it appears they will be forced to sell their prize
asset sooner rather than later.
