Jermaine Jones' troubles with Schalke 04 could soon come to a close, and Blackburn may be the club to help solve them.
Jones is reportedly being looked at by Blackburn Rovers as a potential target in this winter transfer period. Blackburn is looking to acquire the U.S. men's national team midfielder on loan for the remainder of the season, with an option to buy him outright at season's end as part of the deal.
The last time Jones played in an official match was in late November, when he played 45-minutes as Schalke was defeated 5-0 by Kaiserslautern.

Spector open to move away from West Ham
The list of suitors interested in Jonathan Spector is about to grow.
Spector's unsettled situation at West Ham United has left him open to a move away from the club, where he has been at since 2006. Spector's contract runs out at season's end, and an extension appears unlikely, so the club could sell him in order to avoid losing him for nothing.
Findley hearing to be held on Friday
Robbie Findley's future with Nottingham Forest is soon to be determined.
