Gianfranco Zola has revealed Blues are set to extend the loan deal for Alex Jones at Port Vale.
The 22-year-old moved to Vale park until January 2nd, but Blues are looking to keep him there for another spell.
“With Alex we are talking about extending his loan probably with Port Vale,” Zola said.
“He’s been doing very well and there are also a couple of other teams that are interested in him. So we will see if we can extend his loan.”
Jones has scored 10 in 20 appearances for the League One club and there has been speculation of links to other Championship clubs.
Zola also hinted other players could be in a similar position:
“Of course if we bring some players in and we have others where we cannot find space, then in that case we will consider loaning them out.”
What do you think, should we loan Jones out for longer or do you think he can finally prove himself at Championship level? Let us know in the comments below!
