Blackburn wanted to sign Jones

Blackburn boss Sam Allardye has revealed that he could regret not signing Kenwyne Jones in the summer.

Blackburn tried to sign Jones from Sunderland over the summer, but the Trinidad and Tobago international ended up joining Stoke in a £8million instead.

Allardyce told The Sun: “He was out of our price range.

“We would have loved him here and I spoke to Steve Bruce about it but unfortunately it wasn’t something we were able to do.

“He’s very powerful, a really good target man with Premier League experience.

“It’s difficult to find players like that and it’s not often you find one that a club is willing to let go.

“I was unable to do it. It’s frustrating but it’s the reality.”
