Southampton In Free Transfer Bid For Two-Goal Man United Defender


Struggling Premier League club Southampton have been linked with a few transfer move for Manchester United defender Phil Jones in the summer.

According to footballtransfertavern, the Saints could be the next destination for the 26-year-old England international centre back and that he would be a fantastic addition to the defensive setup at Southampton in the event that they survive relegation at the end of this Premier League season.

Southampton are in the middle of a relegation battle that’s almost certain to last until the end of the season.

The Saints are in the battle with clubs like Fulham, Huddersfield Town, Newcastle United and Cardiff City.

They have already sacked their manager Mark Hughes with former RB Leipzig boss Ralph Hassenhuttl named as his replacement.

The Austrian has already guided the Saints to three big wins in his almost ten games in charge of the team.

He guided the team out of the relegation zone last weekend with a stunning 2-1 away win over Leicester City despite playing over half of the game with ten men.

Phil Jones has less than six months left on his Manchester United contract without any contract talks in sight.

He has scored two goals in 153 Premier League games for the Red Devils since he joined them in the summer of 2011 in addition to 27 appearances for the England national team.
