Jones honour at Blues interest

The versatile teenager, who can operate at centre-back or in

midfield, has been compared to Blues captain John Terry by the

Italian tactician. Jones, who has also been tipped for an England

call-up, has admitted he has modelled his game on the Stamford

Bridge favourite and fellow international Rio Ferdinand. The

18-year-old has impressed after being thrust into Premier League

action by Sam Allardyce and is keen to focus on producing the goods

at club level. Jones said: “I just keep playing well for Blackburn

and if the England thing happens, it happens. “It’s nice that

Chelsea have been watching me and I read what Ancelotti said. I’ve

had a bit of stick from the lads though. “I definitely want to play

at the very top. “Terry is someone I always admired when I was

growing up. I watched him a lot. Him and Rio Ferdinand were the

players I modelled myself on.”
