Phil Jones is being linked with a reunion with Wayne Rooney – and some Derby County fans have reacted on social media.

The Manchester United centre-half is way down the pecking order at Old Trafford, and has not featured for the Red Devils in 2020/21 having been omitted from their Premier League and Champions League squads.

Derby are said (Daily Star) to be keen on taking Jones on loan next month, with Rooney open to bringing in his former teammate.

The interest reports have prompted a generally positive reaction from Derby fans on social media, many of whom see the Englishman’s experience as a positive:

 

Regular minutes at Manchester United seem out of reach for Jones, with Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe all ahead of him.

It is therefore not out of the question he could depart on a temporary basis.

West Brom and Burnley are also thought to be in the hunt for the 28-year-old.

With Curtis Davies set to miss the rest of the season for the Rams after picking up an Achilles injury, it’s a move that could have legs.
