Nottingham Forest, Norwich City and Sunderland are interested in signing Kilmarnock’s Jordan Jones according to a report from the Daily Mail.
The 23-year-old winger started his career at the renowned Middlesbrough academy but after failing to break through there, he moved to Scotland signed for Kilmarnock in 2016. He has been impressive for them over the two years he has been there, scoring four goals in 43 appearances last season. This was enough to attract a bid of £350K from Rangers but that was turned down.
But there is a real fear from Kilmarnock that they might have to sell Jones. He only has one year left on his current deal and while there has been attempts to offer him a new contract, Jones has turned them down. Kilmarnock might therefore sell the player so they can cash in. And even though he wasn’t able to break through at Middlesbrough, a return to the Championship might be on the cards.
That’s because the likes of Nottingham Forest and Norwich are interested in signing him. They are also accompanied by Sunderland in that interest with their head coach Jack Ross knowing him well due to his experience as manager in Scotland. All three teams are fans of the player and are closely watching developments with his contract though Sunderland are said to be the most keen on a move. Any team wanting to sign him will most likely have to pay £600K and may even have to battle Rangers whose interest has been reignited after failing to sign him in January.
