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.
