United sign Phil Jones

Manchester United today announced the signing of Phil Jones from Blackburn. The 20-year-old defender-cum-defensive midfielder has signed a 5 year deal with the reds, but his fee remains undisclosed. 

A (loosely translated) statement on the Chinese version of the club’s official site read:


“Manchester United is pleased to announce an agreement with Blackburn for Phil Jones, who has signed a five-year contract,

“The player – who today passed a medical in Manchester –  has agreed personal terms with the club.”

Jones, who impressed vs United this season, has only been playing first team football for Rovers for a couple of seasons and much like Chris Smalling, has progressed at an impressive rate.

With Wes Brown and John O’Shea expected to leave the club in the coming weeks, Jones could find himself seeing much more first-team action than he initially anticipated.

Welcome to Manchester, Phil!
