BLUE­BIRDS BID TO SEAL JONES DEAL

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

CARDIFF City boss Rus­sell Slade has re­vealed plans to hold show­down talks with Ken­wyne Jones in Jan­uary, to thrash out his fu­ture.

The 31-year-old striker’s con­tract is set to ex­pire in the sum­mer and pre­vi­ous at­tempts to sort out an ex­ten­sion have foundered.

“Jan­uary will be cru­cial what­ever hap­pens,” said Slade. “Ken­wyne, is in my team, he‘s a big part of my plans. Oth­er­wise, we would not have loaned out Alex Rev­ell to Wi­gan.

“That shows the in­tent. If the club can work out a deal with Ken­wyne, that would suit all par­ties I’m sure.

“Ev­ery time I pick my team, I am show­ing my hand about where I see my play­ers. If they are not in the team ev­ery week, then that is an in­di­ca­tion.

“Ken­wyne, when he is up and run­ning and fit, is nor­mally start­ing for me.”
