Man Utd's Rooney looking forward to capture of Blackburn's Jones

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has indicated that he would love Blackburn Rovers centre-half Phil Jones to join the club.

Reports suggest that the 19-year old will complete a move to Old Trafford in the next day or so after having a medical today and according to posts on Rooney's Twitter account, the transfer will be warmly welcomed.

"Phil jones is a good young English player. 1 of the toughest defenders I played against last season. Can play midfield to," Rooney posted.

But the England international made it clear that he knew nothing of the impending deal, just that he feels Jones is a quality player.

"I don't know if phil jones is signing for us just saying he is a good player that's all. I haven't got a clue if he is signing or not," added Rooney.
