Former Blackburn Rovers striker Martin Dahlin is a big fan of Manchester United youngster Phil Jones.

Jones has been a revelation since swapping Ewood Park for Old Trafford this summer and Dahlin is backing the former Rovers man to continue his rise.

"I've seen Phil Jones - who obviously used to play for my old club ­Blackburn - and he's a huge talent," Dahlin told the Sunday Mirror.

"I really believe he has a massive future.

"A lot of people ­wondered why United paid so much for him - and it was a lot of money - but I really think he has everything.

"He will be England ­captain in a couple of years, that's how good he is."
