Cardiff boss Jones full of praise for Man Utd, Liverpool target Ramsey

Cardiff City boss Dave Jones admits he's working with something special in 17 year-old Aaron Ramsey.

In Wednesday's 1-1 draw with Ipswich, Welsh wonderkid Ramsey turned on the style to create Gavin Rae's opener before Jordan Rhodes's late leveller.

Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson is one of a host of Premier League managers tracking the 17-year-old.

"The kid has everything, he's a super talent," acknowledged City boss Jones. "He has great quality and composure.

"We played Aaron on the right, on the left, in the middle and at left-back on Wednesday.

"I believe if players have the ability that they can play in any position.

"They might not be the best but they'll still show a certain quality which will ultimately help in that player's development.

"The truth is we don't know Aaron's best position yet, whether it's in the centre of midfield, on the wing or just behind the front man."

The Bluebirds have already rejected £1m bids from Premier League giants Liverpool and Everton for the Caerphilly-born star.

Ramsey, who at 16 years and 124 days, beat Toshack's record of being the youngest player ever to represent Cardiff.

Jones added: "The senior players around him are aiding Aaron's improvement massively.

"Aaron is quality but he must keep working hard to improve so he can fulfill his potential because it is however huge he wants it to be."
