Rumour Mill-David Jones on His Way?

Rumour Mill-David Jones on His Way?

Burnley may well have put one over Blackburn Rovers if media reports are true that we are bringing experienced, 28 year old former Manchester United midfielder, David Jones to Turf Moor.

Just a few months ago, the England Under 21 international was turning out for Rovers on loan from Wigan Athletic and impressed Blackburn enough to give them hope they might have been able to sign him on a full-time basis this summer. It would now appear though they have turned their attention instead onto Liverpool's Jay Spearing.

Jones came through the Manchester United youth system but struggled to make an impression in the first team and spent a lot of time out on loan. In total Jones notched up just four apperances for the Red Devils first team over four years. He also had loan spells at Preston North End and NEC Nijmegen during his time on United's books. Jones joined Derby County on a permanent basis in November 2006 for a fee of £1m. The deal would see Jones initially move on loan to Pride Park until the January transfer window when the transfer was made permanent.

In June 2008 Jones signed for Wolverhampton Wanderers in a three-year deal for a reported fee of £1.2 million. However things did not go according to plan and in May 2011 he decided to look for another club after failing to agree the terms of a new contract. Jones was signed by Wigan Athletic on a free transfer in August 2011 after impressing on trial during the pre-season. However in March this year, Jones completed an emergency loan move to Blackburn Rovers for the remainder of the season and has since left Wigan.

It is reported that he met the Clarets last night to tie up a move so we await to see if this is true.

I saw what you did tmp with the spring chicken "ex Blackburn player" or was that unintentional? a bit worried that that this will mean a one in one out scenario we are already thread bare in this department.

Good luck with him. One footed and over-rated in my opinion. I for one won't be sorry if he signs for the Dingles

why would it be one in one out if no fee involved and we need new midfielders

I think the feeling is Bartley and Stock will go unless we get midfield cover in first! So in a sense with McCann gone that could mean lose three to gain two?

It's been said bc that Bartley and Stock could go if suitable replacements are found and we are considering buying out Treacy's contract, hope that doesn't come back to haunt you dallydally ;)

Reading between the lines it would be two in and four out midfield wise with Treacy, McCann, Bartley and Stock, I didn't think Stock was to bad but Edgar can play that role but what happens if he is out? never mind eh!! we can always put 4 goalkeepers in the net.
