Arsenal hero Keown: Jones perfect fit for Stoke City

Arsenal hero Martin Keown says Kenwyne Jones is the perfect fit for Stoke City.

In his column for the Daily Mail, Keown wrote: "Tony Pulis struggled to find the right striker - he wasn't happy with Dave Kitson, James Beattie or Tuncay - but Kenwyne Jones looks perfect for him.

"He is well suited to Stoke's direct approach and he is as good a jumper from a standing position as I have ever seen, even though his finishing could be improved.

"The best of that type I played against was Les Ferdinand and you had to be strong against him.

"It's very difficult to mark Jones because normally you try to get close to that kind of player so he can't wriggle free, but he is so strong that he gets to the ball first. Look how he has often got the better of John Terry."
