Jones to be added to United squad

Confounding the expectations of many, Phil Jones will be added to Manchester United’s squad for the second part of the season.

Jones, United’s longest serving player, has not played for the club for more than a year, after suffering a serious knee injury. It was widely assumed that he would be solved, but, instead, now that he is returning to full fitness, United have decided to reintegrate him into their Premier League squad.

29-year-old Jones, who still has two and a half years left on his current contract, was left out of United’s initial Premier League 25-,am squad which was announced in October.

However, with club’s able to issue a revised list once the January transfer window closes, Jones’ name will be included this time.

Jones joined Manchester United from Blackburn Rovers in 2011, and is the only survivor left at the club from the team that last won the Premier League under Sir Alex Ferguson two years later.
