Everton Eyes Kenwyne Jones Transfer

Michael Regan

Some alarming reports have come out of Stoke over the past week as out of favor striker Kenwyne Jones has been linked with a move to Goodison Park. Jones was fined £80,000 after saying he was unavailable to play against Liverpool last weekend.

This news, coupled with the apparent departure of Nikica Jelavic, would make most think this rumor has some teeth in it. Under the surface this would be a very strange move for Everton. Jones is 29, and Martinez has shown a preference for buying younger players rather than aging talent, and Jones is definitely an aging talent.

Looking at his stats, the striker has only scored more than 10 goals 3 times in his career that began in 2004. He scored 16 goals in the Championship, and 12 twice in the Premier League. If Martinez wants a striker like that he would have kept Jelavic.

Ultimately this is just another silly rumor. Don't expect anything more from this, but apparently the newspapers need to throw names out to sell.
