Rovers set to swoop for Jones

The 29-year-old American international, who has also played for
Germany, looks to be on his way to Ewood Park. Blackburn are
believed to have made an approach to his club Schalke earlier this
week, and now the deal is all but done. Sky Sports reports that the
two clubs have agreed terms, with Blackburn looking likely to sign
him on an initial loan deal with a view to a permanent deal in the
summer. The player is now due to travel to England over the weekend
when he will finalise a move. A number of other Premier League
clubs are understood to have expressed an interest in the defensive
midfielder, who missed all of last season with a muscle injury.
Jones, who has three-and-half years left on his current deal, has
fallen out of favour with coach Felix Magath.
