Report: Phil Jones will be allowed to leave Man United in January

Manchester United will allow Phil Jones to leave the club in January, according to a report by 90min.

The experienced defender has not played for United in the Premier League since the club’s 2-0 defeat against Burnley at Old Trafford.

The 28-year-old has been subject to criticism due to his performances over recent seasons, and it is hard to see him fighting his way back into the first-team reckoning at United.

Even though he has not played recently, Jones is still in the prime of his career and good enough to play for most teams in the Premier League.

The report added that clubs that are interested in his services include Newcastle United, Leicester City, West Ham United, Crystal Palace, Sheffield United, Burnley and Southampton.

Jones still has ambitions of an England recall, but to do so, he will need to be playing regularly. A move could help him revive his career, just as it did with his former teammate Jonny Evans.

Evans, now with Leicester City, re-established himself as a top defender in the Premier League after joining West Brom and eventually becoming their captain. He left the Baggies to join the Foxes after their relegation in 2018.
