Rovers new defending superstar has signed a new 5 year deal at the club.

A string of cracking displays since his debut against Chelsea back in March has prompted Rovers to act quick to keep a young talent at the club.

Jones had only recent signed pro terms with the club – a product of the youth academy – back at the start of the season.

But Phil, a Rovers fan, has attracted attention from Arsenal amongst others, so this new deal comes as a massive boost to player, club and fans.

Phil is now contracted to Blackburn until 2015.

  • Phil Jones is superman, Phil Jones is superman! This is amazing news!!
    Get The Zonz on a new longer contract now, that reflects his player of the season status!!

  • Great news!! good timing as well with the Gamster fiasco still lingering on. the lad’s got a promising future and good defenders don’t come cheap these days.

  • I will miss MGP if he leaves, but I wouldnt be too dissapointed any more….is joe ledly still going for free?

  • Great news! well done to Jonesy for the outstanding performances and well done to Rovers for securing a star of the future! The future is looking bright for the rovers with all the talented youth we have in our squad!

  • Hey, Jones is still only 18 – he will be an excellent defender – and I think if Arsenal or another team came in, he probably knew that he’d not get as many chances to play as he will with us. However, I think the club have tied him to a long contract so that if any teams come sniffing they’d also have to pay a huge transfer fee.
