If David Jones' stunning free kick against Stoke at the weekend did not cement his standing amongst one of the most under rated players in the modern game there is probably little else he can do.

If this goal had come from any one of the stars of Liverpool, Chelsea, either Manchester and so on, we would be watching it a hundred times over on every sports channel out there.

The concern is the fact that the player and the club appear happy to have let negotiations cease. With his contract winding down, Jones appears to hold the Joker. If he continues performing as he was last season, and as he has started, there will be at least half a dozen top Premiership sides offering him large amounts of money simply as a signing on fee come January. On the other hand, do Wolves really need any more convincing to pay the player up for what he deserves.

Who knows what is going on behind the scenes. Maybe Jones wants to match the biggest earners? Maybe he wants five years instead of three. My grave concern is that the more he improves, the greater interest he will receive, and by the time we are ready to make him an offer he will already have been offered double from elsewhere. The club has been amazing in safeguarding numerous players on long contracts- why Jones is missing from this list is a mystery, and I do not base my opinions on the goal he scored at the weekend. What do we think is holding things up, and will Dave be a Wolves player next season?

I dont think it is the length of contract,It is probably salary,dont forget with all these new signings coming in its not only the transfer fees its also the salaries they are on.Perhaps David Jones has an idea what they are recieving and wants parity with them.
