Sunderland striker Kenwyne Jones says that at no time has he asked to leave the Stadium of Light, following a January transfer window of frenzied rumours. The 25-year-old Trinidad & Tobago international was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool, but Jones insists that he has never requested a change of scenery. He told the Sunderland Echo: "During the transfer window and throughout all the speculation I have never said I wanted to leave. "Everything that was going on was by itself. I think a lot of people were making a lot out of nothing. "If a transfer is going to happen for anyone, it only happens when it's done. All that was said doesn't really bother me. I am just looking forward to playing football. "I don't have control of what is in the press. All I can control is my performance and that is what I aim to do."
