I’ll admit I’m excited about the recent Wolves link to Stoke striker Kenwyne Jones.

The Trinidad & Tobago International is an exciting player and I’d love to see him at Molineux playing alongside Fletcher and Doyle.

Big, strong, quick and with good feet, I’ve often wondered why he’s played for the likes of Southampton, Sheffield Wednesday, Sunderland and Stoke instead of the bigger clubs.

But despite having quite a few clubs under his belt and not making the so-called step-up, he is still only 27-years-old, which means he is about to come into his peak and could become even better.

Now for a striker who has already scored 76 goals in English football over the past few years, that is an interesting prospect!

The only problem I see is that our apparent transfer budget for January is around the £4.5million according to the E&S.

We’ve spent some of that on Iceland international Eggert Jonsson who will be joining from Hearts, which leaves Mick McCarthy’s around £4million to spend at a guess.

Kenwyne Jones moved to Stoke just 16 months ago for £8,000,000.

In 2007 Sunderland paid £6,000,000 for him, so I have to doubt whether he is honestly in our price range at the moment in time.

Perhaps the kitty could be expanded if he really was available? I’d have to argue that on this one occasion it would well be worth it.
