Man Utd agree deal for Jones
14th June 2011 - Berko Tau
Manchester United have agreed a deal that will see Phil Jones play football games for the club after he takes part in the Under-21s European Championships for England.
The 19-year-old came through the youth system at Blackburn before turning professional on 1st July 2009 and made 40 appearances for Blackburn's first team.
Jones has also collected seven England Under-21 caps and played in Sunday's (June 12th) 1-1 draw with Spain in the European Championships.
Although the Englishman is primarily a central defender, he can also operate as a midfielder.
A club statement from Manchester United read: "The player passed a medical in Manchester last week and has agreed a five-year contract. The deal will be completed once the player returns from international duty."
Jones agreement with Manchester United follows Jordan Henderson's transfer to Liverpool.
The midfielder signed for the Merseyside club last week in a deal that is believed to be worth £20 millon.
