But Jones said he could also see players leaving, with captain Joe Ledley the subject of much transfer speculation.Wigan have been linked with a move for the Wales international midfielder, 22, with boss Steve Bruce reportedly offering Koumas as exchange."I spoke to Steve," said Jones. "They (Wigan) spoke to the chairman and the chairman said no."We couldn't afford Jason Koumas anyway."But while the future of Ledley rumbles on, club captain Darren Purse and Willo Flood could be on their way out of Ninian Park.Purse has been told he can leave Cardiff providing a replacement is found first and is understood to be in talks with Norwich City.Jones said: "We've had inquiries about Darren Purse. Darren knows the situation that we won't be letting any players out until we've got replacements."Darren knows this and is happy. He is still trying to earn a contract here which is fine, but he knows I'm looking for other players."Purse's contract runs until the end of the season, as does Flood's.Midfielder Flood, 23, currently on loan at Dundee United, is wanted by Celtic and Jones has spoken to Celtic boss Gordon Strachan about a possible deal.
