Hamilton In Talks To Loan Jones

Scottish First Division side Hamilton are in talks with Swansea about signing 17 year-old striker Chris Jones on loan for next season.

Roberto Martinez's assistant Graeme Jones, has a recommended the youngster plus many others to Hamilton, where he was assistant boss last season.

Hamilton boss Billy Reid said:

' "There is talk of a young striker, Chris Jones, coming up on loan. We`ll decide on that in the next couple of days, but that might happen.

"He`s one of the younger lads who is on the fringes of the first team. He may benefit from coming to Accies and pushing for a squad place."


With the likes of Lee Trundle, Pawel Abbott and Darryl Duffy also competing for places last season, it was difficult for Jones to get a chance and it'll be beneficial for the player and the club if he goes out on loan next season.

Chad Bond, who was released last year by Kenny Jackett is back training with the Swans as Martinez has given him a chance to impress.

The young striker joined League of Wales side Port Talbot after leaving the Swans.

It's good that Chad Bond has had a year of playing competitive football with Port Talbot. The Pontins? Reserve League does not hold much importance, as the bottom team does not get relegated and seems to be just a keep fit exercise. ........................................... Chris Jones does show a lot of promise and this experience will be good for his career. My only concern would be the year long loan. If our forward get injured as did our midfielders this season, then we may need him.

well thats what the "can be recaled" clause comes in

I think it all depends if and how many forwards we sign if we get Duffy and Scotland we probably wont need Chris Jones this season if we don't we might.

thats where we went wrong with pritchard and bond, hardly any experience and so they didn't develop. martinez is doing well sending some off to sweden and others on loan.

I can see it being beneficial for our club if we get our youngsters out playing competitive first team football rather than just keeping the bench warm and making random cameo apperances every so often.
