Roy Keane was dealt a blow earlier this summer when star striker Jones injured his knee in Trinidad & Tobago’s friendly match against England. The striker had been in impressive form for Sunderland the past season, and Keane wanted him to lead the line for next season, but Jones’ injury has ruled him out until 2009 at least, according to the Daily Mail.
The same Daily Mail now reports that Keane has lined up a replacement for his crocked striker. The article reckons that Everton’s Andy Johnson is in line to join the Black Cats. The former Crystal Palace man has had an impressive debut season for Everton, but failed to confirm in his second year at Goodison Park. Now Moyes has made the striker available as he tries to make room for other players.
According to the report, Johnson could leave Everton for about Ã‚Â£10 million. With that money, Moyes would then look to add Darren Bent to his squad and pair the former Charlton Athletic striker with Yakubu, as was reported by the Daily Mail earlier this week.
