The Football League Paper - - INSIDE -

BOURNEMOUTH may not be happy with a play-off spot but the Cher­ries have con­firmed Ken­wyne Jones’ ar­rival on loan will cover the dreaded post-sea­son lot­tery should the worst hap­pen.

Ed­die Howe’s side are top with seven games to go and have bol­stered their ranks by sign­ing gi­ant Trinidad & Tobago in­ter­na­tional Jones for the run-in.

The 30-year-old striker has played 36 times for Cardiff this term, scor­ing 13 goals, hav­ing joined the club from Stoke in Jan­uary 2014.

Jones fea­tured for the Blue­birds in a 1-1 draw against the Cher­ries ear­lier this month and scored dur­ing the Welsh out­fit’s even­tual 5-3 de­feat at Dean Court in De­cem­ber.

With a Pre­mier League place up for grabs, the Cher­ries are tak­ing no chances.

“Jones will train with Ed­die Howe’s squad for the first time next week fol­low­ing their re­turn from a train­ing camp in Dubai and could make his de­but in the Good Fri­day fix­ture at Ip­swich Town,” read a Bournemouth state­ment.

“The deal will run un­til the end of May to cover any pos­si­ble in­volve­ment in the Cham­pi­onship play-offs.”
