Jonah Attracting Interest

Jonah Attracting Interest

Crewe forward Steve Jones is attracting interest from numerous Championship clubs, including Stoke, Burnley, Derby, Watford, Cardiff, QPR and Preston, whilst Scottish side Hibernian are also rumoured to be interested. Jonah is out-of-contract this summer and it is widely expected that the Northern Ireland international will depart Gresty Road.

29-year old Jones has been subject of speculation for some time now, with Stoke rumoured to have offered him a two-year deal on £3k a week. Meanwhile, Preston boss Billy Davies has announced his interest in the striker, 'Jones is a player we admire and like and we have been making a lot of phone calls concerning him.' Meanwhile, QPR have also admitted that they 'spoke to Crewe about the possibility of signing Steve Jones' in the January transfer window, whilst Burnley have also been credited with an interest in the striker. As no fee would be payable for Jones, Cardiff boss Dave Jones reportedly sees Jones as an ideal summer signing to provide more competition for places up front.

Jones has had a disappointing season in front of goal, scoring just 4 goals, though he has played on the left of midfield in recent months. However, his electric pace and clever movement guarantee that Jonah will get chances when played up front. Despite the poor goal return, Jonah's season hasn't been a total disappointment, having bagged 12 assists - the 2nd highest in the Championship.

According to Daily Mail, Burnley are 95% certain of getting him,so that means we probably wont!! :-) ''Burnley look to have won the race to sign Crewe's Northern Ireland forward Steve Jones on a free transfer. Stoke and Plymouth have also expressed interest in handing the 29-year-old a Championship reprieve but sources at relegated Crewe revealed he was "95% certain" to join Burnley.''
