Wayne Rooney tweeted earlier that Phil Jones was one of the hardest defenders he played against this season and in the tense 1-1 draw that saw United pick up the point that sealed the title, he showed exactly why.

After speculation linking him with Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs, Jones apparent opted for United and has been undergoing a medical at Carrington.

The deal is said to be worth £15m and his performance in May won’t have done his chances any harm as he put in a solid performance as Blackburn attempted to throw a spanner in United’s works.

This little clip shows the 19 year olds performance at Ewood Park that afternoon as he ran, tackled, blocked and headered in an attempt to keep United at bay following Brett Emerton’s first half goal.
