Swansea Boss Quiet Over Jones Bid
Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has not ruled out the chance of signing Stoke City striker Kenwyne Jones in the January transfer window.
It was reported that the Swans made a £3million approach for the 28 year old Trinidadian this week but that was instantly dismissed by Tony Pulis and Stoke.
Laudrup is keen to sign another striker after the South Wales club received two very generous bids for Danny Graham from Norwich and Sunderland over the past few days and one of those deals could be very much on.
Graham has failed to nail down a starting spot this season after the summer signing of Michu but Laudrup will want to add to his squad before allowing the North East born forward to leave.
Jones is set to start for Stoke against the Swans today and so Laudrup didn’t feel it was the best time to speak about his transfer talks.
“He (Jones) will probably play. Maybe if he can play with us it can be 12 against 10 but I don’t think that will happen,” Laudrup told Sky Sports.
“Let’s just say it is not the proper time to talk about a player when he is playing against us in around 24 hours time.
“Let’s hope tomorrow he does not have too good a day as it is better for us.”
