Kean warns Rovers ace Jones

BY foxsports • May 31, 2011

England Under-21 international centre-half Jones is a reported target for Liverpool and Arsenal, with Tottenham and Manchester City also thought to be among the admirers. But Kean believes local lad Jones will make better progress as a regular rather than risk a fight for a game at a giant outfit. "I don't know if Phil would go straight into the team at a Champions League club," said Kean. "And he wants to play. He wants to be a central defender - where he is looking fantastic. "He is also a supporter and it's great for the fans to see one of their own playing. He was outstanding at the end of the season. "You always brace yourself for bids - we have had offers before for him and I am sure there will be solid ones in again. He will move on some time, but I can see him being captain here first."
