Phil Jones in Solskjaer’s plans for the season after making first Man Utd appearance in 19 months

Manchester United defender Phil Jones is reportedly in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans for the season after making his first Manchester United appearance in 19 months.

This is according to a report by Daily Mail.

The 29 year old defender played for Manchester United for the first time in 19 months in a behind-closed doors friendly against Burnley at Old Trafford.

Jones, who made a 30-minute comeback off the bench in United’s 3-1 win, has been out of action since featuring in a FA Cup tie against Tranmere in January 2020.

Jones, who had a knee surgery in June 2020, has two years left on his £130,000-a-week contract at Old Trafford.

Despite the arrival of Raphael Varane, Jones is keen on rebuilding his Manchester United career and Solskjaer reportedly hopes to use him as one of five centre-backs.
