Jones helps Taylor-Fletcher
Dave Jones has confirmed that former Blackpool forward Gary
Taylor-Fletcher is training with Sheffield Wednesday.
The Owls boss announced ahead of the weekend that the
experienced frontman is looking to keep himself fit in his search
for a new club.
The 32-year-old is currently available as a free agent after
seeing out his contract at Bloomfield Road.
Jones has not ruled out the possibility of Taylor-Fletcher
landing a permanent deal at Hillsborough, but will be keeping an
eye on his situation.
He will not travel to Portugal with the rest of the Owls squad
when they head out on their pre-season tour, but could still be
drafted into their plans before the 2013/14 campaign gets under
Jones told the Sheffield Star: “He’s just training with us and
we’ll see how it goes.
“Gary phoned and asked if he could train here. He was training
with Wrexham – why not train with us? There’s no harm in it. We’re
just looking at him.”
Meanwhile, Jones has played down the level of his interest in
former Bolton striker Kevin Davies – who was linked with a move to
Wednesday but has now linked up with League One outfit Preston
He added: “Preston is on Kevin’s doorstep and he’s got a
two-year deal, which probably suits him better.
“It wasn’t a definite about us wanting him, we’re looking at
other players as well.”
