Everton fans are absolutely adamant they don’t want to move for Phil Jones this summer, after odds were slashed on the 26 year-old moving to Goodison.
Phil Jones is likely to leave Manchester United this summer, and the bookmakers have Everton as second favourites for the English international at 5/2.
Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling are all now ahead of Jones in the Old Trafford pecking order, and reports suggest Jose Mourinho will sign another centre-back this summer.
According to Oddschecker, 84% of all bets on the 26 year-old’s next club are on Everton, suggesting the odds could be cut even more in the coming weeks.
There is a history with Sam Allardyce as well; the Everton manager gave Jones his first breakthrough in football when the pair were at Blackburn.
Everton have had some woeful defensive displays this season, and fans have not been particularly impressed by the signing of Michael Keane or the performances of Ashley Williams, but they are adamant they don’t want Jones.
