Liverpool join Jones suitors

Liverpool join Jones suitors

Seems like Phil Jones is a man in demand as it turns out that old Rovers boss Kenny Dalglish was at the game on Monday night to see the England Under 21 man turn in another cracking shift in the Rovers side.

Jones has been followed closely in the past by Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs but the rags are now suggesting Liverpool are keen and the figures being bandied about is £15 million.

Superman is still in his teens but his performances have been nothing short of awesome for a struggling Rovers side and he has been tipped for an appearance in the full England side in the near future.

The bonus for Rovers, who are known to being determined to hold onto one of their prize assets is that the young man recently signed a deal that will keep him at Ewood Park till 2016.

Which means any side serious on taking him off our hands better come armed with a truck load of cash.

I agree Mikey, £15 MILLION IS PENNIES , if Carroll went for £35 Million we dshould be wanting something similar for Jones

Very good player IMO , very rare to find a cb who is as comfortable and confident on the ball as he is, needs to join spurs and learn from the master Ledley king

If David luiz cost chelsea 25m Euros and Gary Cahill will be sold for about 15m / 20m can't see ya getting more than £15m for him

Surely Phil Jones wouldn't consider anfield, any of the others are better options, but if he does go lets make sure we take as much of the carroll money as possible. With the display on monday Phil has added a few million to his price tag??

I would sooner keep him than take £15m. As long as the Venky's put money in for new players like they said they would we shouldn't be seen to be a selling club anymore. We should be building the club around our young talent with Mr Jones and Hoillett, Hanley, Rochina, Olsson etc. Hope he's happy to carry on wearing the blue & white.

£35 million for Jones who has just turned 19 and a Prem Regurlar, whilst can play equally as well in centre midifeld as he can in defence, Future England captain its a snip, But don't think he will be going anywhere soon, he is happy at Rovers, just signed a new contract and is enjoying it at Rovers

Why would he go to Liverpool/Spurs/Arsenal? Hes more likely to win more at Rovers.. either the Championship or Play off final next year ;)
