The Phil Jones shop window advert
Steve Kean has reiterated his desire to hold onto superstar defender Phil Jones, but you could be fooled reading the rest of his quotes.
Jones has been earmarked as a future England captain and more importantly, a future Rovers captain by all and sundry.
But with Jones attracting interest Kean has stepped into ward potential suitors off... before bigging him up a dream.
Kean told Sky Sports - "I don`t know if Phil would go straight into the team at a Champions League club'
"He is a Rolls-Royce, he is a fantastic player and is bound to attract interest.
"He plays like a 28-year-old, he`s got experience and calmness and when needed he has got that turn of pace."
"He is also a supporter and it`s great for the fans to see one of their own playing"
"He was outstanding at the end of the season."
"You always brace yourself for bids - we have had offers before for him and I am sure there will be solid ones in again"
"He will move on some time, but I can see him being captain here first."
A little admission at the end there? If Samba leaves then make Jones captain I say.
