Man Utd defender Jones suffers further injury blow

Manchester United are facing the prospect of being without England international defender Phil Jones for another prolonged spell after the player left the club’s training ground on crutches, the Daily Mail has reported.

Jones had only just returned to training after missing United’s first three Premier League games of the season due to a back spasm, but on Thursday Jones injured his leg and hobbled away from training. The Mail adds that it appears United will be without the versatile former Blackburn Rovers player for the foreseeable future.

Moving to Old Trafford from Ewood Park in summer 2011 for a fee of more than £16m, the 20-year-old made 42 appearances for United last season, scoring twice. Jones also made his England bow during the 2011-12 campaign, appearing for the national team first in Euro 2012 qualifying match against Montenegro in October 2011. Jones has five international caps to his name.
