Jermaine Jenas has urged Aaron Lennon to turn down a move away from Spurs.
Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas has urged team-mate Aaron Lennon to turn down a move away from White Hart Lane in January.
Chelsea have been linked with a winter bid for the England winger after his sparkling display on Sunday.
Jose Mourinho has rejected the weekend speculation and that will come as welcome news to Jenas and the Spurs faithful.
"The fans love him and we don't want to lose him as a player," Jenas is quoted in The Sun.
"He was the best player on the pitch on Sunday and gave Chelsea all kinds of problems.
"We knew he would, especially as he had his new yellow boots on and we gave him plenty of stick before the game - but we didn't say a word afterwards!"
Lennon scored the winner against The Blues on Sunday and Jenas believes the result proved the 19-year-old can win trophies with Martin Jol's men.
Jenas said: "He's been threatening to score for a few games but he saved it for the biggest occasion.
"He did it by beating Ashley Cole and he's the best left back in the world - it was a great finish.
"Chelsea have been linked with Aaron but results like this prove he doesn't have to go there to fulfil his ambitions and win things."
