Nottingham Forest target Jermaine Jenas
NOTTINGHAM Forest's new owners want to demonstrate their ambitious intentions with a big-name signing – and have already begun a bold move to bring Jermaine Jenas back to the City Ground.
The Al Hasawi family are working hard to make a statement addition to the Forest squad, after completing the deal to buy the club a few weeks ago.
And the Post understands that club representatives have already contacted Jenas' advisors to see if he would be interested in a return to the club where he made his name.
Forest appointed Sean O'Driscoll as their new manager at the end of last week and the arrival of the new boss could swiftly be followed by that of Jenas, either on a season-long loan move or possibly even on a permanent basis.

New Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is a fan of the midfielder .
But Villas-Boas also knows he has a squad that is top-heavy with midfield players, not least since beating Liverpool to the capture of former Swansea midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, and could be persuaded to allow Jenas to move on.
The 29-year-old is understood to be enthusiastic about the prospect of a return to the club where he learnt his trade, before being sold to Newcastle for £5m ten years ago.
Jenas missed the majority of last season with a ruptured Achilles sustained during a loan spell with Aston Villa.
He played less than two hours of football during the entire campaign.
But the 29-year-old is now fully fit and has been preparing for the new season with the rest of the Spurs squad.
Jenas was a popular figure after making his breakthrough into the first team amid the golden generation of talent that was honed under the guidance of Paul Hart.
Andy Reid has already returned to the club last summer, while Michael Dawson remains a first-team regular at Spurs.
