Former Premier League star Kevin Phillips believes Phil Jones should pursue a fresh challenge away from Manchester United this summer after falling down the pecking order. The England international has hardly played for the club over the course of the season and he is currently the fourth-choice centre-back behind Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly.
Speaking on Football Insider, Phillips said that Jones has been a good servant for the club but the time has come to part ways. He added that a move to Newcastle United could suit him with a regular run of starts in the top-flight, he told: “Definitely. His time at United is up but he has been a good servant for the club. A move to the north-east could be great. A move for the lad will be good for him.
