The midfielder has rarely featured for the Latics in recent weeks,
and when he was made the offer of regular first-team football by Rovers, Jones told BBC Radio Lancashire that Martinez was more than accommodating.
"The manager listened to my thoughts. In a way, he did me a favour by letting me go when he perhaps needed some cover (in midfield)," said the 28-year-old.
"He listened to what I wanted and what was best for me. The opportunity came and I was very eager to take it so I'm happy it went through."
