Just speculating here but Columbus Crew were interested in Jones last year. They just traded their DP striker Kamara today and need a target forward maybe they might try to make a move for Jones this summer as his future is up in the air. Even if it's not Columbus Jones will be on the move this summer as he hasn't started consistently so I doubt Al Jazira would renew his deal.

Damn, Columbus sent a clear message by trading Kamara after all his drama this past weekend. Maybe it could be a possibility for KJ as you mentioned if he can't get another deal over there but the $$$ won't be the same.

Kenwyne Jones and Al Jazira FC win coveted President's Cup 2016 in dramatic penalty shootout
Kenwyne Jones Media


Captain of the Trinidad & Tobago Men's National Team, Kenwyne Jones, continues to fly the flag of red, white and black high in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, as his Al Jazira Football Club edged past Al Ain to snag the highly-contested President's Cup 2016 on Sunday evening.

Fondly called "The Pride of Abu Dhabi" by fans, Al Jazira's triumph was a hard-fought battle against rivals Al Ain, who had managed to level the score at 1-1 at the end of the full 90 minutes. Jazira's goal came in the final minute before halftime, when Ali Mabkhout was awarded and calmly put away a penalty opportunity. Not to be outdone, Al Ain returned with a vengeance in the second half, and eventually levelled the scoreboard thanks to Brazilian-born Dyanfres Douglas, whose bullet shot to the roof of the net in the 64th minute.

Thereafter, Jones was sent on as a substitute by coach Henk ten Cate to keep the defence line strong for Al Jazira - a move which certainly worked in the team's favour, as regular time ended in an even score. With the removal of extra time as part of the new rules for the President's Cup, the trophy tug-of-war would have to be decided in a penalty shootout showdown.

After a total of 13 shots combined from the teams, Al Ain's fatal blow came swiftly, stunning into silence its heartbroken fans at the Shaikh Zayed City Stadium. It was Mohanad Salem's unlucky and ill-fated strike that would seal the deal of defeat for the Al Ain squad, and result in the glorious moment of celebration and revelry for Jones and Al Jazira.

His Publicist, Tenille Clarke, is ecstatic for her client and team's title. "Kenwyne is absolutely thrilled to be a part of the President's Cup Champions for 2016. He always believed that Al Jazira had great potential to be stars in the league, and it's just an air of celebration right now for him, his teammates, the Al Jazira staff, and his fans in the United Arab Emirates. To end the season on such a high, words can hardly describe this moment for him. Teamwork made the dream work, and it's been a long season of hard work and sacrifice for him. The dedication to his craft has once again paid off in not only representing his club, but Trinidad & Tobago on the global stage."

Jones has been on loan with Al Jazira F.C. in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) since January 2016, on loan from Cardiff City F.C. The Dubai-based club has also recently been named the Professional Club of the Year, and has previously won the President's Cup twice, having lifted the trophy in 2011 and 2012.

I figure they meant defending set pieces. He did a lot of that in the premiership as well.

Anyone know what's happening with KJ now?  He's left Al Jazira - has he returned to the UK? No news of anyone showing interest or even of him being available.

His loan ended, he should go back to Cardiff.
In my opinion he could easily play in MLS and be one of the top scorers, he's a very physical player so he would fit perfectly on the league. The problem is his salary is too high, I don't think any MLS club would pay like $2mi for him. He's not too famous and already 31 years old. If he accepts a huge paycut to earn like $800k I guess he'll receive some offers.

Cardiff released him on 23rd May.  MLS seems like the logical move, but there's been no news of any club showing interest as far as I am aware?

Cardiff City release Ben Turner and Kenwyne Jones in clearout

Cardiff City have released defender Ben Turner and striker Kenwyne Jones.

The duo join goalkeeper Joe Lewis, forward Etien Velikonja and midfielder Filip Kiss in departing the Bluebirds, along with four under-21 players.

Turner, 28, joined the Bluebirds in August 2011 and scored a last minute equaliser in the 2012 League Cup Final against Liverpool at Wembley.

He played 31 games for Cardiff in the Premier League in 2013-14 and made 121 appearances for the club in total.

Trinidad and Tobago international Jones joined the Bluebirds in a swap deal involving Peter Odemwinge in January 2014.

However, Jones was allowed out on loan this season and said at the time he had been offered 'no deal' to stay at Cardiff City Stadium.

In January he joined Al Jazira in the United Arab Emirates on loan until the end of the season.

Lewis, 28, joined on a free transfer from Peterborough United in 2012 but made only five senior appearances and had loan spells with Blackpool and Fulham.

Slovenia international striker Velikonja joined Cardiff on a four-year deal in July 2012 but failed to score in five first team games for the Bluebirds

Slovakian Kiss joined Cardiff on loan from SK Slovan Bratislava in July 2011 before the deal was made permanent 12 months later.

The 25-year-old spent two loan spells at Ross County and also spent a season on loan with Norwegian side.

Cardiff have also released Jazzi Barnum-Bobb, Abdi Noor, Tyler Roche and Curtis Watkins from their developmental side.

However, extensions have been offered to Luke O'Reilly, Elijah Phipps, Jamie Veale, Macauley Southam, David Tutonda, Ashley Baker, Dylan Rees, Tom James, Robbie Patten, Tommy O'Sullivan and Theo Wharton.

Jamie Bird, Rhys Abbruzzese, Lloyd Humphries and Rollin Menayese have all been offered their first professional contracts.

So KJ comes and plays in Pro League.....which is fantastic preparation for playing modern international football.

The intensity....the technical requirements on display.....the quality of players....the experienced coaching...

Hex World Cup qualification for Russia 2018 is guaranteed.

So you don't think KJ presence in the pro-league will give it the profile that it needs.  Same as Landon Donavan going back to LA or Tim Howard recent move back to the MLS.

So how do you reconcile what you said above...with what you stated here?

Quote
KJ's own refusal

Refusal definition per Webster's dictionary: 
Quote
an act of saying or showing that you will not do, give, or accept something : an act of refusing

You saying that KJ deliberately decided not to fulfill his potential?  Because that's what a refusal is.  A deliberate act of NOT doing something.

And what if KJ actually achieved his potential and it's the expectations of others is wrong?  Impossible?

It will get profile for sure.  And then what?  Players will play quicker?  Coaches will improve?  Fans will attend games?

Here's what I think will happen...

SOME Trinis will come out to see KJ.  And the first chance he misses, they will steupes, cuss him, and call him a shithong.

"He cyah even spannah self? All he good for is to jump high.  And look how lazy he is...he eh even trackin back.  Daz wha I waste my time doin when I coulda be watchin Messi, Neymar, and Suarez on TV?"

KJ possesses some good qualities as a striker, pace, strong in the air, good shot, holds off defenders well, but his poor work rate to help win the ball back and dribbling skills to beat a defender in a 1v1 situation has kept him from elevating his game to another level.
