Liverpool willing to meet Blackburn buyout clause in Jones contract

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is willing to meet the buyout clause in Phil Jones' Blackburn Rovers contract.

The Sun says Liverpool aim to beat Manchester United and Arsenal to the signing of Blackburn's Under- 21 centre-half Jones.

Dalglish watched Jones, who can also play in midfield, several times last season.

He is confident he can get him for the £16m release clause he has in his contract.

Jones yesterday had talks with Blackburn boss Steve Kean, who told the defender he should spend 12 more months with the club he supported from a lad.

The 19-year-old, who only signed a five-year deal in February, still lives with his parents in Lancashire - which suggests Liverpool or United have a better chance of luring him.
