Sunderland must stay up if they want to keep star striker Kenwyne Jones.

The Sunday Mirror says the 23-year-old, who joined the Wearsiders from Southampton in a £6million deal last summer, has a get out- clause in his contract that can be activated if Sunderland go down.

Manager Roy Keane recently said he wouldn't sell the Trinidad and Tobago striker for £50million. In fact, the Wearsiders' boss rated Jones in the very top rank of Premier League strikers alongside the likes of Didier Drogba.
