Super Jones signs new FIVE year deal

Rovers new defending superstar has signed a new 5 year deal at the club.

A string of cracking displays since his debut against Chelsea back in March has prompted Rovers to act quick to keep a young talent at the club.

Jones had only recent signed pro terms with the club - a product of the youth academy - back at the start of the season.

But Phil, a Rovers fan, has attracted attention from Arsenal amongst others, so this new deal comes as a massive boost to player, club and fans.

Phil is now contracted to Blackburn until 2015.

Great news! well done to Jonesy for the outstanding performances and well done to Rovers for securing a star of the future! The future is looking bright for the rovers with all the talented youth we have in our squad!

Hey, Jones is still only 18 - he will be an excellent defender - and I think if Arsenal or another team came in, he probably knew that he'd not get as many chances to play as he will with us. However, I think the club have tied him to a long contract so that if any teams come sniffing they'd also have to pay a huge transfer fee.
