Former Premier League goalkeeper Mark Crossley believes that Phil Jones would bring experience to Fulham.
90min reported that the Cottagers are one of a number of Championship clubs interested in the Manchester United outcast with a loan move the most likely scenario.
The 29-year-old didn’t feature at all last season for the Red Devils due to injury, but he did return to make his first appearance for United in 18 months in a behind closed doors friendly against Burnley earlier this month.
With the Red Devils bringing in Raphael Varane this summer, you would imagine that drops Jones down the pecking order to fifth choice centre-back at Old Trafford and so a temporary move away could be a good option for him in order to get some much needed game time.
Crossley believes that Jones would bring experience to Fulham, telling Football FanCast: “I like Phil Jones, I think he’s a good player. But it just worries me about how injury prone he is but he’s obviously a top, top player.
“You don’t get signed by Manchester United if you’re not a top player. So, again you do need experience around the squad and maybe Phil Jones is that one just to give that extra little bit of experience.”
Fulham have made a brilliant start to life back in the Championship under Marco Silva, picking up 13 points from a possible 15 so far and sit top of the table, conceding just three goals in the process.
