Blackburn Rovers Agree Fee With Schalke For Midfielder Jermaine Jones

Posted by admin on Friday, 14 January 2011

Jermaine Jones appears to be on his way out of Bundesliga side Schalke as Blackburn have agreed a fee for the USA international, according to Sky Sports News.

Blackburn are looking to add some fresh blood to their ranks in the January transfer window and recently appointed manager Steve Kean supposedly sees 29-year-old Jones as the perfect signing.

Jones joined Schalke from Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer of 2007 and quickly became an important first team member at the club. However, he has lost his spot in the starting XI this term and was even demoted to the reserves.

Therefore, Jones is seemingly desperate to leave the club in the January transfer window and although the midfielder's current contract runs until the summer of 2014, Schalke are reportedly ready to part company with the player if a good offer comes in.

Clubs such as Hoffenheim and Wolfsburg are also believed to be interested in signing the former Frankfurt star.
