Keeping those on the books who it is already recognised have made vital contributions to the cause is a necessity especially when they have youth on their side.

Therefore it is good to hear that Manchester United and Phil Jones has been persuaded to sign a new deal at Old Trafford.

Jones, who joined Manchester United from Blackburn in 2011, has signed a new deal that keeps him at Old Trafford until 2019 whilst also providing him with a healthy weekly salary of in excess of £100,000 a week.

At 23-years-of age, Jones has a good career ahead of him and his ability to play across the back-line and also in midfield, gives him an element of versatility that few players of the modern age possess.

Good work by all concerned I`d say!
