Southampton’s Trinidad & Tobago striker Kenwyne Jones has today extended his loan move to Championship side Stoke City until the end of the season.
Kenwyne joined Stoke in early February, initially on a one-month contract, but the form he has shown in his five appearances for the side since then has led the club to extend the deal until the end of the season. Kenwyne scored on his Stoke debut in mid-February, the only goal in the 1-0 win over Millwall, but has since found goals harder to come by.
The tall, athletic striker had previously spent four months on loan at League One side Sheffield Wednesday where he scored seven goals in seven games, before returning to Southampton and playing in one Barclays Premiership game and one FA Cup match for the South coast side.
Kenwyne was pleased to be continuing his stay at the Potteries:
“I am really enjoying being given the opportunity to play first-team football on a regular basis here and pleased to be staying until the end of the season.
”The side are on a great run at the moment and we are extremely focussed on getting into the play-offs.
”I have to keep working hard and learning every day in training, but there is nothing quite like playing first-team football for improving your level of play.”
