The Daily Mail have Manchester United fans looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the Red Devils are set to hand Phil Jones a contract extension.
Now as one of our punters notes over a beer and burger by the bar, we think that Jones is a quality player at times – but may not be quite up to the standard that we once thought he was or that Manchester United need.
Despite that and some rather shaky performances at times this term, Jones has been offered a new deal by Louis van Gaal and the United board and will put pen to paper on the contract imminently.
Jones would have been out of contract come the end of next season, but will now stay at the club and see his wages total £80,000 per week.
Manchester United fans. Are you happy about this? Let us know your thoughts below.
