English high-flyers approach for international attacker after Rangers bid - report
English Championship high-flyers Bristol City have approach Kilmarnock with an enquiry about Jordan Jones, according to a report.
The Daily Mail claimed in their live transfer blog on Saturday [04:45pm] that the Robins have been in contact with Killie about Jones, 22, after he was the subject of a bid from Rangers.
It is understood that the Northern Ireland international was once on the radar of Burnley, but now, Bristol City seem ready to make a move for him as they look to bolster their bid for promotion to the Premier League.
Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke had confirmed that the Gers had tabled an official bid for the former Middlesbrough attacker, which was widely reported to be worth £350,000.
Jones has been in top form at Rugby Park this season, making 27 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals and supplying three assists in the process.
Football Insider verdict
Graeme Murty and Mark Allen have worked well this month in getting players in but they still have some work to do before Wednesday’s deadline. Pedro Caixinha got all his work done early in the summer but it seems that this time, the Light Blues may be waiting to go down to the wire to pull off some final deals. Most of the business that could revolve around Ibrox is players going out. And that would have to happen if a signing of Jones would be worthwhile. Rangers are well stocked in the wide areas that Jones roams at Rugby Park, so unless players in that area were sold – which is unlikely – then that could open up a late new bid for the Killie ace.
