Jones endured an injury-plagued campaign last season.

When asked by Inside United if he was focusing on going on the club's July tour of Thailand, Australia, Japan and Hong Kong, the versatile defender replied: "Definitely. That's important for me for the next season coming up.

"I think I've only had one pre-season and that was in my first season here so it's important I get a full pre-season under my belt. I need to get fitter and stronger and mentally prepare myself for what will be another tough season again."
