Stoke boss Hughes says Jones must wait for contract talks
Jones will be out of contract next summer, and Hughes would be keen to retain the 28-year-old if he can fulfill his potential over the course of the season.
Hughes said: "It's early days in terms of contracts. I am aware of the situation with a lot of the players, but for me the important thing for me now is trying to win football matches.
"Kenwyne has been fantastic this season, and if he plays as well as he has done I am sure that he will score a lot of goals for us. He is capable of scoring a lot of goals at this level.
"I sense that Kenwyne is enjoying it at the moment. He has maybe gone through a spell where things didn't go so well for him, but he is a player I like and somebody that offers a lot to us.
