The Transfer Everton fans really don’t want – Kenwyne Jones
Since last night social media sites and Everton Forums have been going crazy with talk of Everton looking to sign Stoke City striker Kenwyne Jones. Loads of newspapers ran the story late last night which suggests that his agent is trying to shift his player on.
Jones is out of contract in the summer and may not be as bad as many are suggesting, but this is a player that has barely featured for Stoke City recently and has reportedly gone on strike to force through a move. With complications over the Michy Batshuayi deal, Everton are in the market for a new striker following Nikica Jelavic transfer to Hull City and Arouna Kone’s injury.
Jones would be available for around £1m, although Crazy man Mark Hughes wants closer to £3m.
If the transfer does go through then I think the vast majority of Everton fans would be underwhelmed.
