Cardiff City should keep hold of striker Kenwyne Jones

Cardiff City should keep hold of striker Kenwyne Jones according to defender Fabio Da Silva.

The striker is out of contract at the end of the campaign and there is a lot of interest from other Championship clubs. Sheffield Wednesday are thought to be heavily considering the prospect of making an offer for the player when he enters into the final six months of his contract. There is also interest from abroad with some Israeli clubs showing interest. The player will be able to sign the precontract agreement with foreign clubs from January if his situation at Cardiff City does not change.

Fabio Da Silva reckons that the player is one of the finest headers of football at the club. He will be a way out of the Championship without much investment. Since making the move to Cardiff permanent, Fabio Da Silva has been doing his best to get back into the limelight. However, he will be aware that it will be difficult while playing in the championship. Fabio first came to the bluebirds as a loan player from Manchester United. Since then, he has made the move permanent. Towards the end of last season, Jones was sent out on loan to Bournemouth, who were then promoted to the Premier League.

“We have to keep our good players and he is one of them. We have to keep them to fight for promotion.He’s good in the air, he’s good on the ball and he can finish. So he’s a quality striker. It’s very tough. He’s massive, he’s huge. I’m not that big so it’s very hard to defend against him [in training]. The confidence was low after relegation and everyone was sad. That’s not good. So we have to keep going now. The confidence is making the team play well,” said Fabio Da Silva.
