Manchester United outcast Phil Jones linked with Burnley move.

Manchester United outcast Phil Jones linked with Burnley move.

According to Sun, Jones could be the shock name at the top of the shopping list Sean Dyche will hand to new Burnley chairman Alan Pace.

Jones, 28, has not played a single game this season because of a knee injury.

But he had been shunted to the sidelines anyway, despite signing a new contract two years ago that would keep him at Old Trafford until June 2023.

Dyche could be tempted to take him on loan for the rest of the season, especially as United have indicated they would be prepared to pay a large chunk of his £130,000-a-week wages if he is loaned out.

And if Leicester or West Ham renew their interest in James Tarkowski – and meet Burnley's £35million valuation, after falling short in the summer - the Clarets boss will be desperate to bring in an experienced replacement.
