Stoke star hopes for Jones reunion

Higginbotham knows Jones from his time at the Stadium of Light.

Stoke and Sunderland have reportedly agreed on a £9million deal for the Trinidad & Tobago star.

“Kenwyne is a strong lad and I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone jump as high as Kenwyne,” Higginbotham told The Sentinel.

“He’s very athletic and knows where the back of the net is.

“I think we signed for Sunderland on the same day – and he’s certainly come on as a player since.

“He would be very good for us. The way we play would suit him well. He has that strength you need.

“I know what a handful he can be, with both his pace and his strength.”
