Jones has struggled to hold down a regular first-team role in recent times, restricting him to just nine Premier League outings this season.

He has, however, made three consecutive starts in December and netted in a 1-1 draw with Everton on Saturday.

Jones concedes that he does not know where he stands in Tony Pulis' thoughts heading forward, but he is prepared to continue giving his all to the Stoke cause for as long as he is required.

"It's been difficult, but I guess that is life for a footballer," he told Sky Sports.

"Things happen, things change, and you either have to roll with it or fall down. I've been rolling with it for quite a while and I'm just going to keep smiling and doing what I have to do."

On reports which have suggested that his days at the Britannia Stadium could be numbered, Jones admits that he does not know what 2013 will hold.

"I can't pin my future to being at Stoke or being in this country," he added.

"I can't say what's going to happen come the summer time. For the moment, I am happy to be playing and working hard and hopefully scoring some goals."
