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).”
