Striker’s move to the Liberty Stadium on hold.
Swansea City have had a £3million offer for striker Kenwyne Jones rejected with Stoke City wanting double the offer.
Swansea boss Michael Laudrup is keen to sign the Trinidad and Tobago international as a replacement for Danny Graham, who looks destined to be on his way back to his native north-east in a £4.5million deal to Sunderland.
But Stoke are not willing to do a deal at £3million as they want to recoup closer to the £8million they paid Sunderland to sign Jones in 2010, according to the Guardian.
Stoke are ready to offload the 28-year-old Jones, despite the targetman having played a significant amount of games in recent weeks, while he has 18 months left on his contract. They would stand to lose value if letting him go in the summer, and the return to fitness of Peter Crouch has resulted in manager Tony Pulis willing to do a deal.
Graham, 27, has been unable to force his way into Laudrup plans on a regular basis after losing his place in the first-team to Michu, who has been an instant hit since arriving in the Premier League and the move to Sunderland should reinvigorate his career.
