Man United defender Phil Jones is reportedly not looking to leave Old Trafford, while Jose Mourinho will not allow him to join Arsenal.

The Gunners emerged as a shock target for the 24-year-old, who has also caught the attention of Stoke City after failing to feature in any of Mourinho’s squads so far this season.

Jones has not started for Manchester United since January, but The Guardian believe that Mourinho still sees him as a valuable first-team player and will get his opportunity to stake a claim for a starting spot in the coming weeks.

The England international still has four years left on his £100,000-a-week deal at Old Trafford and Manchester United officials are not ready to give up on the 24-year-old just yet.

The report also states that Jones is not overly concerned by his lack of first-team football at the moment and is willing to fight for his long-term at the club.
