T&T FA claims Bundesliga, La Liga interest in Seattle’s Jones
An article on the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association’s web site says Joevin Jones might not be long for Seattle.
Jones, 25, has 59 caps for the Soca Warriors and is the regular left back for the Sounders, but has a contract that runs out in December.
It is understood that clubs from the German Bundesliga, Spanish La Liga, the Mexican First Division and also another unnamed club in France have been keeping track of the 25-year-old player.
At the moment though, Jones’ future is still undecided as Seattle are yet to hold any talks regarding his possible future at the club. There were some Seattle fans in Port of Spain last week who came out to support Jones and the T&T team against Panama and Mexico and they were asking questions about his future, saying they would love for him to remain with the club past the current season.
Honestly, that does read a bit fishy, no? In any event, it would be interesting to see how Jones’ skill set translates to one of the top leagues in Europe.
Jones started his career in his home country with Westside Connection before heading to HJK Helsinki. That landed him in MLS with Chicago Fire before a trade to Seattle.
