Jones in line for Man United transfer after 'brilliant' development - pundit

Man United defender Phil Jones has “put himself in the shop window” for a move by the end of January, according to Kevin Campbell.

The former Arsenal and Everton striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, heaped praise on the 29-year-old for his “brilliant” display against Wolves.

Jones was handed his first start of the season on Monday night following a torrid run with injury (3 January).

“Jones is an experienced player. He has been at Manchester United a long time now.

“You could see him coming in and doing a job for United against Wolves but long term, I’m not sure. I cannot see him being there long.

“He was brilliant the other night though. The problem for United was going forward. There was not attacking force. Nothing was there. There is a lot of work to be done.” 

Jones has made 225 career appearances for the Red Devils since arriving from Blackburn Rovers in July 2011.

The 27-times England international has been linked with a move to Newcastle United and West Ham.
