Kenwyne Jones Interesting Villa?

Kenwyne Jones Interesting Villa?

There have been a few rumours online that Villa are after Stoke City and former Sunderland striker Kenwyne Jones but to be fair, they looked a bit flakey so I didn`t put in one of our transfer links gossip article! I can`t mention every player rumoured on Twitter or Facebook really!

However, Mirror reporter James Nursey has just tweeted a bit of an update.

‏@JamesNursey
Re: #AVFC possible interest in Kenwyne Jones , sort of player (targetman) Lambert likes but told nothing imminent despite medical rumours.

According to Wiki, the 27-year-old Trinidad & Tobago international scored 26 goals in 94 games for Sunderland and just 10 in 55 for Stoke.

I`d rather we went for Peter Crouch!!

Opinions folks?

A few years back he would have been worth ago but there is probably better and cheaper abroard,British players are over priced for what you get.

I'd have him. I'm sure Hutton would be part of the deal, plus maybe a bit of cash. He looked very good a few years ago at Sunderland, if PL could get the best out of him, who knows?

the kind of player we don't have in squad, so definately worth the gamble at 3 or 4 million plus hutton, i feel we still need a powerful midfielder as well, someone to really take the game by the balls.

10 from 55 at Stoke then?.... better than Gabby here then.... in that case if Mutton is part of the deal, I suppose it's worth a punt if thats all we can manage.....

Whatever we spend on him we could probably spend it better on somebody else...

If SJH is right and the deal was Hutton plus a bit of cash i'd take it with both hands. Otherwise i'd leave it. Not the sort of striker we need.

My tenpenceworth: I'm sure KJ is a nice guy, but how hungry and motivated is he? He never seems to be fired up, willing to throw himself at things, use his strength. Stoke signed him for a silly amount and so won't want to write most of that off. For me, he is quite lazy, his scoring record is poor, his skill doesn't impress, there is surely no chance he will join Villa!
