Celtic: Club linked with Phil Jones move

Celtic: Club linked with Phil Jones move - Celtic

Premiership champions Celtic have been linked with a shock move for Manchester United defender Phil Jones.

The Hoops were linked with a move for Man Utd’s Jesse Lingard some days ago, but they have now been linked with a move for another Man Utd man – Phil Jones.

Celtic among other clubs that want Jones

The report from 90 Min claims that Man Utd will allow Jones to leave the club on loan in the January transfer window and apart from Celtic, as many as seven Premier League clubs also want the English defender.

Should Celtic avoid signing Phil Jones?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The report also states that while United’s preference would be to sell Jones permanently, his lack of game time in the first-team will make a sale difficult and a loan move will allow the Red Devils to free up some of their wages.

The Hoops are also interested in Lingard and Dean Henderson and have asked the Red Devils to be informed about their situations.

Move for injury prone defender doesn’t make sense for Celtic

Jones’ current deal at Old Trafford runs out in the summer of 2023 but he last played for United in January 2020 in a Premier League loss to Burnley.

There's no way you can name all ten obscure Celtic players! First up, who is this?

The 28-year-old has missed quite a few games through injury over the last few years and currently, he is recovering from an injury. During his time at Man Utd, the Englishman has missed more than 200 games due to various injuries.

This shows that Jones has a rather questionable fitness record and because of that, Neil Lennon’s men should avoid trying to sign him in January.
