Jones set for Cardiff City departure

Cardiff City striker Kenwyne Jones is set to leave the club in January ahead of a move to a club abroad, according to Wales Online.

Reports suggest that he will head out on-loan, with clubs in Dubai, China, Qatar or the MLS likely to be his destination for the rest of the season. Jones’ contract is up in the summer and a move will become permanent then.

The 31-year-old has made 19 appearances for the Bluebirds this season, scoring five and assisting two to help Cardiff sit in 10th place going into 2016, six points off Ipswich in sixth.

Jones was Cardiff’s top scorer last season after scoring 12 goals in 40 games for the club.

The striker is the club’s highest paid player and is on a salary of £35,000 a week, a figure that owner Vincent Tan is keen to get off the wage bill.

Cardiff are set to make the signing of striker Tony Watt permanent when the Charlton striker’s loan deal comes to an end in the middle of January, making it likely that he will be a direct replacement for Jones.

The transfer window opens in the new year and Jones’ representatives are already in talks with a number of clubs about a move.
