Whatever you do, do it to the purpose; do it thoroughly, not superficially. Go to the bottom of things. Any thing half done, or half known, is in my mind, neither done nor known at all. Nay, worse, for it often misleads.

According to The Daily Mail, Liverpool have pushed ahead with discussions for Sunderland striker Kenwyne Jones - despite Ryan Babel's refusal to play any part in proceedings.

It was reported over the weekend that the Reds had approached their Wearside counterparts with a proposal that would see Babel head to the Stadium of Light in exchange for Jones.

However, Anfield's Dutch flop - who recently spurned Birmingham City's advances - has apparently rejected the chance to rebuild his career in the North East, although Rafael Benitez still wants to bring in the Black Cats' Trinidadian star.

Initially Liverpool were said to be pursuing a permanent arrangement, but now they seem willing to settle for a six-month loan deal - such is their need to secure quality cover for the injured Fernando Torres, quickly.

Jones is expected on Merseyside later today (Monday) to undergo a medical examination.

 :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

On a serious note, look at Torres  last 3/4 "partners"
Kuyt - now played exclusively on wing
Heskey - rarely played
Crouch - rarely played
Keane - lasted 6 months

In reality doesn't like using 2 strikers and doubt it will change anytime soon.

Like it to happen just to see what Thompson says  on Soccer Saturday though.

Kenwyne Jones not going to Liverpool, Sunderland insist
http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/teams/s/sunderland/8465290.stm

Sunderland have denied reports that striker Kenwyne Jones is set to sign for Liverpool on loan.

An article in the Daily Mail claimed the Trinidad & Tobago star, 25, was due at Anfield for a medical on Monday.
But club sources insist the player will not be leaving during January's transfer window.

Liverpool are seeking reinforcements in attack after losing top scorer Fernando Torres, captain Steven Gerrard and winger Yossi Benayoun to injury.

The Reds, currently languishing in seventh place, were rumoured to be eyeing Jones as a stand-in for Torres, who is out for six weeks with a knee injury.

Previous reports had suggested Benitez was keen to swap out-of-favour Reds forward Ryan Babel for Jones, but the deal was dismissed by Sunderland manager Steve Bruce.
   
Birmingham have also been linked with a bid for Jones, who signed a new four-and-a-half year contract last January.

However, Bruce and chairman Niall Quinn have both spoken in recent days of their desire to keep the player at the club.

The 6ft 1in frontman, signed from Southampton for £6 million in 2007, has six goals this season and has forged a promising partnership with leading scorer Darren Bent.

He played the full 90 minutes in Sunderland's most recent game - a 7-2 thrashing by Premier League leaders Chelsea on Saturday.

Quinn - Jones is vital to us
Black Cats chairman also confirms interest in Kuranyi.
SKYSPORTS.


Niall Quinn says Sunderland are not looking to sell Kenwyne Jones and confirmed the club did make an approach for Schalke striker Kevin Kuranyi.

Jones has been linked with a January move away from the Stadium of Light, with the likes of Liverpool and Stoke City rumoured to be interested in the Trinidad & Tobago striker.

However, Black Cats chairman Quinn believes Jones is vital to the club and is not keen to see the former Southampton striker leave during the transfer window.

Quinn told Goals on Sunday: "Kenwyne Jones knows exactly what I think of him. I love him as a footballer. He's got the complete package.

"If things work out for him in the second half of the season, he's vital to us. Behind the scenes agents may be setting up things with football clubs, but it happens today.

"We don't want to get rid of anybody at the football club."

Offer accepted

Sunderland also tried to sign Kuranyi from Schalke only for the Germany forward to decide to stay with the Bundesliga club until the end of the season.

"If there's someone we can sign to help [we will]," added Quinn. "Look, it's been well-publicised. I think Steve [Bruce] has mentioned it.

"We did look at Kuranyi and spoke to his club Schalke. The idea for us was that it would make it even better at our club.

"We could have Jones, Kuranyi and Darren [Bent] who is phenomenal."

Schalke coach Felix Magath has confirmed that the club accepted an offer for Kuranyi, who has also been linked with Birmingham City, only for the 27-year-old to reject the move.

Magath said: "I had already reached an agreement with a club who wanted to buy him, but Kevin said that he did not want to leave.

"Selling him was only an issue because of financial reasons.

"On the sporting side, I am not unhappy that he is staying because we can still do with him."
The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

I feel Ryan Babel scupper the deal by not going to Sunderland, cause it make no sense for Bruce to send Jones on loan otherwise. But if he was getting a quality player in return, plus he probably hope that Jones might have gotten some consistency and exposure at a big club...it could work out better in the long run for Sunderland as he would cost more when is time to sell or he might come back a better player in the summer.

I feel rafa is a real striker killer but now that i watching the deal, it could really be a good move for Kenwyne while Torres injured. They will just boom kick to him and he will play a lone striker role and try to win headers.Liverpool is never score without Gerrard and Torred anyway so he will look the part wthout having to score.  ;D

I find this some what confusing and does not make much sense,Liverpool and Sunderland playing in the Premiership,both fighting for survival,what sense does it make for Sunderland to loan Liverpool one of your goal scorers,how does that benefit Sunderland,something just not sounding right about this whole scenario.

I wouldn't say that Liverpool is fighting for survival.

Besides that, I agree with Coops, something about this rumored deal is very weird.. You are in a relegation battle and you sending one of your game changers away for a six month loan supposed to accomplish what? Its either they have contingencies in place we not hearing about, Bruce and KJ had a serious falling out or this is wholly fabricated imo.
