The Blackburn Rovers defender is set to join United today.
While he is a centre-back by trade, Jones loves to get forward and spent the first half of the season playing in Blackburn's midfield under former manager Sam Allardyce.
"Defending isn't just about tackling and heading, it's also about getting the ball down and playing. Starting the attack from the back.
"Getting forward is a natural part of my game.
"I like to step in and take the strikers out of the game.
"If you have that in your game and can do it well, it's only going to benefit the team as well."
