Jones initially joined the Cobblers from Wolves in the summer on a six month loan and it looked like Mick McCarthy wanted the player back in his squad at the end of the deal. But Gray has acted fast to hold onto the youngster and was delighted to extend Jones’ stay.
Gray said, “Daniel has extended his loan spell and that is a major boost for us. Dean Bowditch extended his loan spell just before Christmas as well and we are very grateful to both Wolves and Ipswich for allowing us to hold on to both Daniel and Dean for a bit longer.”
Jones is suspended for the trip to Leeds at the weekend but will be back in contention for the home game with Hartlepool United the following week. The current loan will end after the Leyton Orient home game on January 25th.
