Jones: Man Utd move just felt right

Phil Jones has zero regrets in joining Manchester United over the summer.

The England prospect hasn't looked back since his controversial move from Blackburn Rovers.

Jones told the Sunday Telegraph: "It was brilliant when I heard of United's interest, an incredible feeling.

"The whole experience - speaking to the manager on the phone, meeting him in person, going through the whole process of signing - was fantastic.

"Lots of clubs showed an interest in me, but United just felt right; the whole club, the set-up. It wasn't the fact that it was United, it was that I walked in here and met people, the staff and physios et cetera, and it just felt right.

"At Blackburn, when I knew there was interest from bigger clubs, I said to myself that if it [a move] happens, then it has to feel right and this felt right."
