Former Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp has described Manchester United defender Phil Jones as "pure gold".

He wrote in the Daily Mail: "Phil Jones is pure gold. He's a utility player who reminds me of my old team-mate Steve Nicol. He is a great athlete, can tackle, burst forward, create and score.

"Long-term, I see him as a centre half but I'm sure Sir Alex has his own ideas. England will also be interested in where he ends up. Now he needs to stay fit and get a run of games."
