QPR manager Warnock to offer striker Jones an escape from Stoke

QPR are considering a move for Stoke striker Kenwyne Jones. Manager Neil Warnock is eager to sign up to five players next month and wants the majority to have Premier League experience.

Jones, 27, is growing frustrated at his lack of opportunities to start, with Peter Crouch and Jon Walters forming a strong partnership.

Stoke boss Tony Pulis is looking to add two players and is keen on VVV Venlo striker Michael Uchebo and Crystal Palace”s Wilfried Zaha.

Although Zaha is likely to go elsewhere, the fact Pulis is looking for more strikers will not improve Jones” chances at Stoke.

Warnock has money to spend and, while the likes of Bobby Zamora and Jermain Defoe may be on his wishlist, Jones could be a more realistic target and give QPR a greater physical presence.

Warnock reiterated he may allow Adel Taarabt to leave if the club receive a realistic offer. The Moroccan has been linked with Paris St Germain.
