Report: Sheffield Wednesday not interested in signing former loanee Kenywyne Jones from Cardiff City

Sheffield Wednesday - The Owls

The Trinidadian is being linked with a return to Yorkshire, ten years after a fruitful loan spell at the club.

This week has seen Kenwyne Jones being linked with a move to Sheffield Wednesday from Cardiff City. The Sun have reported that The Owls are keen on bringing the giant Trinidad and Tobago international to Hillsborough on loan for the season.

Jones has previous at Wednesday. He was with the club on loan from Southampton in 2004-05, where he was a massive hit. He scored seven goals in seven games whilst with the club before becoming a hit at Southampton and heading off to the likes of Sunderland, Stoke City and, now, Cardiff.

He helped Bournemouth to promotion last season but will not face the side in a pre-season friendly today, as he has been left behind.

This fuelled rumours of an impending Sheffield Wednesday switch, but Wales Online is claiming that the story is a long way wide of the mark and is mere rumour.

They say that Wednesday have made no such approach, as Cardiff continue to insist Jones is a part of their plans for this season.

Sheffield Wednesday have recently signed Lucas Joao in the striking potion, so Jones would have been an odd signing anyway – despite his history with the club.
