Cardiff are chasing Stoke City's Kenwyne Jones to bolster their attacking options for next season, according the Daily Mirror.

The Stoke striker would cost Cardiff £7 million to be their first Premier League signing.

The Trinidad & Tobago striker has had a poor run of form of late, scoring just three goals in 25 league appearances. 

Cardiff owner, Vincent Tan wants Cardiff to stay in Premier League and will back manager Malky Mackay at any cost.

Tan said: “We do not want to be a one-season wonder. Malky Mackay has a lot of things to do.

“We must support his work and be positive. We want the best for Cardiff City.

“We are in the Premier League and understand it is going to be difficult, but we will do everything we can to keep our place there.

“We want Cardiff City to be known as a Premier League club and there is work to be done.”

The Championship winners believe Jones can add invaluable Premier League experience to the side, but he has only scored four league goals in the last two seasons.

They will also need to bring in some more players to be able to cope with the demands of the Premier League if they want to avoid relegation back to the Championship.

With Stoke looking like they need to bring in some fresh faces themselves, Pulis and the Potters will look to let Jones leave and the £7million will go towards adding to the side.
