Jones has been played in midfield by Moyes this season.
"Phil, in time, will be a centre-half but he's a very able defensive midfielder.
"His bravery gets him into injury situations. He throws himself in. With maturity he will realise when to go in and when to stand off.
"After this World Cup, I think England will probably be looking at Smalling and Jones as their next centre-halves."
