hris will be monitored on a daily basis.I'm convinced his overall game will improve playing in a squad that is young and capable of playing football in the right way.When I spoke to Chris about the move, he was excited about it. team.'



The club have stated in the Official statement regarding the loan that they have the option to recall him.

Jones has impressed at the club with his pace and movement have been earmarked as his greatest assets. This move will make him a better player which will have long term benefits for the club.

The South Wales Evening Post have also reported that Steven Watt is also set to follow Jones out on Loan.

Good luck Chris.

by the way Chad Bond has resigned for the club on a 1year pro deal after impressing on trial and finishing top scorer at Port Talbot. i know this is fact cos i spoke to him about it. but it's not been online anywhere!

This would suggest to me that the duffy deal is done as i dont think RM would let Chris go without being assured he had enough cover for the 1st team.

It can only mean good things for the club and the player as he will only get better the more matches he plays!
