Keane: Sunderland's Jones more mobile than Drogba

Sunderland boss Roy Keane doesn't like the comparison of Kenwyne Jones with Chelsea star Didier Drogba.

"I'll be happy if he turns out like that," said Keane. 'But everyone's different. Kenwyne's a different type of player to Drogba - the same height and physique but you can't just compare them because of that."

He also told The Journal: 'The role of the big, strong target man is changing. A few years ago he didn't really move. Niall (Quinn) wasn't one for running down the channels, or (Tony) Cascarino certainly. Now they're a lot more mobile.

'And Kenwyne's a good player. Chops (Michael Chopra), Dave Connolly and Daryl Murphy will all enjoy playing off him. He brings a lot to the party."
