Football Transfer Centre

Everton have been told to pay £3m for Kenwyne Jones by Premier league rivals Stoke City. However the toffees only want to pay £1m for the striker who is out of contract in the summer.

Everton are short on strikers after summer recruit Arouna Kone was ruled out with injury and the club agreed to the sale of Croatian striker Nikica Jelavic to Hull City.

Although stoke would prefer a sale for the Trinidad and Tobago striker Everton may wait till the summer when they can snap the 29 year old for free.

The striker was also fined after he went on strike to force a move away from the Britannia stadium.
