Wednesday manager Paul Sturrock has said he may look to sign Trinidad & Tobago international Kenwyne Jones on a permanent basis, after bringing the Southampton man to Hillsborough on a one-month loan deal.


But first of all he has called on the 20-year-old utility man to make an "instant impact" after confirming he will start Sunday's South Yorkshire derby at Doncaster in an attacking role.

Sturrock said: "He's very exciting player - 6ft 2in and very quick. He was my first signing at Southampton. He came as a 19-year-old utility player. I signed him as a centre-half, but he has played in midfield and up front for Southampton's reserves."

The boss says the Saint gives him options in a number of areas going into the Christmas period but he might look to extend Jones' stay after his loan period ends following the Bournemouth game:

"Most loan deals go for a month first and we'll look at it after that," he said. "He's also got international games for Trinidad & Tobago in February. They play an awful lot of games in a season, which has sometimes been a hindrance to his individual career. But it's nice to have a utility player who can fill in for several positions."
