Jones joined from boyhood side Blackburn Rovers back in 2011 but has been marginalised at United over the past two seasons, playing just 13 games in that period.

Ten Hag’s 25-man squad list includes all six of his summer signings, as well as young goalkeeper Nathan Bishop and third-choice left-back Brandon Williams.
