Knill expects Owls offer for Jones

Knill expects Owls offer for Jones

Scunthorpe United boss Alan Knill says there has been no contact with the Owls over a permanent move for Rob Jones - but is expecting a bid over the coming weeks.

Jones impressed during a seven-week loan spell at Hillsborough, playing a part in guiding Wednesday away from relegation danger and into a safe mid-table position in npower League One.

He's thought to be on a wishlist of nine players that Owls boss Gary Megson wants to bring to Hillsborough on a permanent basis for a push for promotion next season.

And, with the former Hibernian centre-back seemingly surplus to requirements with Scunthorpe, Knill is expecting Wednesday to make an offer for the defender this summer.

'He's done really well there, so I would expect some interest,' Knill told the Scunthorpe Telegraph.

'The indication is that they are quite happy with him, so I would expect us to have some sort of communication with Sheffield Wednesday.

'Whether we'll be asking for a fee for him I'm not sure, that's not really my shout.'

The Iron paid an initial £350,000 to Hibs for Jones and they could be looking to recoup some of that, with Wednesday in a position to match their demands thanks to the arrival of Milan Mandaric as chairman.

Megson wants to bring nine players to the club this summer and has revealed that all nine are British players, with six being free transfers and three requiring a fee.

I agree...with Miller gone he is the ideal candidate for club captain. He's no frills but doesn't appear to have the howlers in him that Purse used to have. Let's make this one happen sooner rather than later SWFC.

My only slight concern is he came off a few times injured a few times. Hope it was due to lack of games and a good preseason would sort that out.

Chris Porter has been released from Derby, the sort of player Megson likes!

Jones is injury prone so if we sign him expect him to miss a few games, with our physio team being one of the best in the Country I say sign him.

Jason Koumas' name has been branded about. Reckon he'd be a class addition but think he's maybe a cut above what we could attract in league one.

Megson took Koumas to WBA so bit of history but doubt he'd drop down to our league!
