Sir Alex Ferguson preferred to utilise him in front of the defence and none of his seven England caps have come in his preferred role of centre-back.
But Jones is determined to establish himself as one of England’s finest defenders — one day.
He said: “I have said from day one that I see myself as a centre-back
“But if I am asked to play in midfield or at right-back, I am happy to do so. As long as I am in the team, it doesn’t matter whether I am in goal.
“Of course, towards the middle and end of my career I will want to start cementing a place in a certain position, but at the moment I am happy.”
