Girlfriend of Man Utd signing Jones in Twitter war with Blackburn fans

The girlfriend of Manchester United signing Phil Jones has become embroiled in a Twitter war with Blackburn Rovers fans.

The Lancashire Telegraph says Kaya Hall was targeted as Jones' protracted £16.5million transfer to Manchester United played out.

Kaya leapt to her man's defence as fans lambasted the young defender, accusing him of being a sell-out.

One Blackburn supporter tweeted Kaya to say Chorley-born Jones was 'not welcome in our town'.

She replied: "Well good job he doesn't live, nor is from, your town then isn't it!"

To another she said: "Why you running your mouth to me then!? I don't care!

"Going on about legacys and stuff. You sound like you're in lord of rings!"

In another tweet she wrote: "You are so so pathetic. I think even Jack Walker would be ashamed of the stuff you say."

But a number of Rovers supporters leapt to Jones defence, ahead of his Old Trafford move.

Later Kaya posted: "Thank you to all the kind supportive people.

"It's nice to know you outnumber the horrible abusive people who intend to be hurtful."
