Neville sees Jones as future captain

Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has backed new recruit Phil Jones to one day wear the armband at Old Trafford.

United clinch Jones deal

Jones, an England Under-21 international, agreed a five-year contract to move from Blackburn earlier this month and Neville, who retired last season, believes he is destined for great things.

"I think this lad's going to be a star, I really do," he told Singapore's The New Paper. "I think he's going to be somebody who could potentially be a captain of Manchester United in the future.

"He looks really solid and he's somebody who can be a huge player for the club for the next ten years. There's a lot of potential there and the performances he's put in over the last two years have been outstanding, particularly against us.

"For a 19-year-old that's excellent. He's a great signing for us."
