Contract option
The London club will have the option of signing the 25-year-old on a permanent basis when his loan expires next summer. Jiménez moved to Italy to join Ternana Calcio in 2002, and had spells on loan at ACF Fiorentina and S.S. Lazio before a third temporary move led to a permanent deal with Inter. However, after a successful loan spell in 2007/08, last season saw the player – nicknamed 'The Wizard' – hampered by injuries. The 20-times capped international said of his new challenge: "I can't promise anything but I am going to everything possible to do a good job for the club."
