JONES SEEKS SCHALKE EXIT
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Friday, January 3, 2014
With the January transfer window open in May, one player who could be on the move is Jermaine Jones who has requested a transfer from his club Schalke.

Jones, 32, has been with Schalke since 2007 and has helped the club to qualify for several Champions League appearances. Prior to that, he featured with Eintracht Frankfurt also in the Bundesliga.

A source at Shalke confirmed the official press release that Jones will not travel with the team for winter break in Qatar.

It is unclear what the next step will be for Jones who has hinted at his interest in joining MLS however it remains a question as to which teams could meet his likely high salary demands.

Born and raised in Germany, Jones played for Germany at the youth level and even for the senior team in non-binding friendlies. When FIFA changed its rules in 2009 that enabled him to switch his affiliation to the United States, Jones did so immediately but a leg fracture prevented him from playing with the U.S team until after the 2010 World Cup.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
