Jones The Man For Rovers As Sunderland Get Bent?
Blackburn Rovers are closing in on the signing of Kenwyne Jones according to various news sources, with Sunderland only waiting to secure a striker themselves before letting Jones leave.
Jones had been refused a move to Spurs back in january for a fee as large as £14 million but Sunderland are now believed to be wanting only £9 million - instantly making him in sight for the Blue and White Army.
Word coming out as well is that Sam has made an enquiry and has been told to drop his pursuit of another target Darren Bent and let Sunderland win that particular pursuit, which would then make the signing of Jones easier.
I personally would be all in favor of this as Kenwyne is a top draw player who can score goals. He also fits the leading the line target man that Sam craves.
It is only an initial report but this one sounds a bit more concrete than some of the other rubbish being bandied round the media.
