Phil Jones Signs Five-Year Contract With Manchester United

Great news for all Manchester United fans as the club has confirmed the signing of Phil Jones from Blackburn Rovers.

The 19-year old centre-half has reportedly put pen to paper on a five-year deal with the English champions with the transfer fee believed to be £16.5million.

The England U21 international had agreed personal terms with United last week but the deal appeared to have hit a snag with Blackburn holding out for more money.

However it is now close to being complete after the Red Devils released a statement this afternoon.

“Manchester United is delighted to announce it has signed an agreement with Blackburn Rovers for the transfer of Phil Jones,” said a United statement.

“The player passed a medical in Manchester last week and has agreed a five-year contract.

“The deal will be completed once the player returns from international duty (with the England U21s).”
