thumbnail Hello,

The Trinidad and Tobago frontman joined from Stoke City in a swap deal with Peter Odemwingie, and the Cardiff City boss cannot wait to see his new signing in action

Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has expressed excitement at the prospect of new signing Kenwyne Jones leading the line.

The 29-year-old forward completed his move to south Wales on Tuesday, as part of a swap deal that saw Peter Odemwingie move to Stoke City.

The Trinidad and Tobago striker proved inconsistent during his three-and-a-half year stay at the Britannia Stadium, but Solskjaer has no doubt Jones can prove a success as Cardiff aim to escape the Premier League relegation zone.

"He's what I need. He's a striker I've admired for many years," said Solskjaer after Tuesday's 2-0 defeat at Manchester United.

"He's always been difficult to play against. I'm looking forward to seeing him play.

"What he did in training (was fantastic). It's a shame we didn't get the papers signed (in time for him to feature against United), but he'll give us that 'oomph'."

After joining Stoke for £8million from Sunderland in August 2010, Jones scored 26 goals in 115 appearances for the club, with eight of his strikes coming in the League Cup.
