Phil Jones has heaped praise on Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes, likening the veteran to a magnet.

The 37-year old came out of retirement in January to be a key player in United's quest for a 20th title this campaign and his influence has not been lost on first year Old Trafford young gun Jones.

"He's a terrific player," Jones told The Daily Mail. "When you see him in training, the things he does, it's a joke.

"He is like a magnet to the ball. The positions he takes means he is always around the ball, always there to receive the ball, always there to support play."
