Following his performance against Sweden earlier this week, England manager Fabio Capello likened the 19 year old to Hierro as well as Italian great Franco Baresi.
“I know Jones very well. He played for England against Spain last summer in the Under-21 European Championship and was very impressive.
“I was there and said that England had a serious talent.
“Sir Alex Ferguson would not pay so much for him if Jones was not a great talent.
“If he keeps evolving the way he is he will be world class.”
