Derby County and West Bromwich Albion both want to sign Manchester United defender Phil Jones on loan in January, according to a report.

Phil Jones could reportedly leave Manchester United on loan during the January transfer window.

The 28-year-old has not featured for the 20-time English champions since January and was left out of their Champions League and Premier League squads following an operation.

The Englishman is closing in on a return to fitness, but he does not appear to be in the plans of United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the second half of the 2020-21 campaign.

According to the Daily Star, Jones could leave Old Trafford on loan at the start of 2021, with West Bromwich Albion and Derby County both in the mix to sign him.

The report claims that new Baggies boss Sam Allardyce wants to bring the Premier League winner to the Hawthorns, and the strugglers are prepared to pay the majority of his £120,000-a-week wages.

Jones has made 224 appearances for the Red Devils since arriving from Blackburn Rovers.
