McCarthy expects Jones to stay

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy is confident of keeping midfielder David Jones at Molineux. Jones, 25, has just one year remaining on his present contract, but has been linked with several moves away following an impressive first season in the Premier League. The former Manchester United youngster recovered from knee problems to make 20 league appearances last term, but has recently been mentioned as a possible transfer target for Newcastle United and Bolton Wanderers. "I want Dave to stay. He's got a year left of his contract and it's the same situation as where we were in March," explained McCarthy, who offered the midfielder fresh terms towards the end of the last campaign. "We're trying to sort something out. Hopefully that will get done. I think it will get sorted out fairly quickly. "We want him to stay and be part of the squad and I haven't heard anything from anyone."
