Jones heading to Manchester United

Jones heading to Manchester United

Blackburn Rovers defender Phil Jones is reported to be at Manchester United having a medical as he closes on a move to Old Trafford.

Liverpool were believed to be the clear front runners for the up and coming superstar but reports suggest that Alex Ferguson may have pulled something out of the bag here.

United are believed to have offered Jones a five year deal and the rumour is that Jones has moved to United for £13 million + Mame Biram Diouf, who has signed for Rovers on a permanent basis.

The teenager is supposed to be in Denmark ahead the European Under 21 Championships but looks to have put off joining with the rest of the young Englanders to seal a move to Old Trafford.

Chuffed to bits with this. With Brown on his way out and Evans development hitting a grinding halt and our recurring midseason injury issues another CB is needed, though not priority. The potential he has the ability he's showcasing already suggests he will be one of the best in the future. At 16 mil, though it seems steep, the value for money is definately there. With this money do you guys want Diouf?

There's no way that he will start ahead of Ferdinand and Vidic, not yet at least. Do you reckon they'd be willing to loan him back to us, so that he plays on a regular basis.

Not good, I would have thought a Rovers fan would want to be apart of the new ongoings that are happening to Ewood park.. We need to kick start the summer transfers and bring in some new talent before we loose the likes of Samba & The Zonz aswell. But to the plus side of this an extra 16mil will help out alot!

As RFB says. Can't see him making many appearences next season...Cup runs and end of season games like Smalling. What a waste of his talents to be bench warming but such is the way of the world. As I said on the forum Mame Diouf better get his shooting boots on as he needs a lot of practice on converting his goalscoring positions into goals.

Why would we want Diouf back! He had 3-4 good games, the rest he played avarage at best! Kean you need to buck your idea's up fast or close the door behind you before you ruin our team... Getting worried about whats to come next season...

£13 million plus Diouf is stupid. Diouf didnt show enough for me. We should have taken the extra cash! We are going to end up with same strike force we had last year the way Kean is going! If he doesnt use this money to bring in fresh players we will struggle badly. Diouf is not a goal scorer and couldnt even get in team at end of season past Roberts and Benjani for God sake!!

It was always on the cards he would eventually leave, Don't get too disheartened, with the cash coming in and the cash we already had then this will be one of the best summers ever for being a rovers fan, We can now buy good players instead of watching all our rivals buy them ahead of us, As i have said previosuly they is great business for us, becasue at least this time we will see the money instead of it being used to cover operating cost and debts
