CAUTIOUS CHERRIES SNAP UP KENWYNE
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.”
