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.


Would Jones be a decent back up striker for Everton?  Have your say at


    • totally, i think it was pretty well received, and i also think he’s a player with good potential, why buy one of these players that might sit n his laurels once they get a big transfer when you can have this decent player with a point still to prove, bad article

  1. Please NO NO NO, watched him loads he is complete garbage, makes Victor look good! Perservere with the Batshuayi deal Roberto, he looks THE REAL DEAL!!!!

  2. Remember him coming to Goodison when he was playing for Sunderland.He was garbage and both sets of fans were ridiculing him.What kind of ambition does this show to other players, either those they are offering new contracts or others that they might be trying to attract to the club.

    • Yeah I remember el tel. Under Martinez we are showing great promise and playing good football. We need to carry on improving & Jones would be a BAD move! Jordan Rhodes would be a good shout 20+ goals a season, available for just £4M!!

    • No doofus, he is rubbish mate, a BIG step back! Batshuayi IS the way forward! Or maybe Jordan Rhodes top goal scorer at Rovers last 2 seasons, available for £4M, DEFINATELY worth a gamble!
