Jones honour at Blues interest

lackburn youngster Phil Jones is delighted his performances for Rovers have brought him to the attention of Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti. The versatile teenager, who can operate at centre-back or in midfield, has been compared to Blues captain John Terry by the Italian tactician. Jones, who has also been tipped for an England call-up, has admitted he has modelled his game on the Stamford Bridge favourite and fellow international Rio Ferdinand. The 18-year-old has impressed after being thrust into Premier League action by Sam Allardyce and is keen to focus on producing the goods at club level. Jones said: "I just keep playing well for Blackburn and if the England thing happens, it happens. "It's nice that Chelsea have been watching me and I read what Ancelotti said. I've had a bit of stick from the lads though. "I definitely want to play at the very top. "Terry is someone I always admired when I was growing up. I watched him a lot. Him and Rio Ferdinand were the players I modelled myself on."
