Jones targets defensive berth

Manchester United's Phil Jones still sees his future at centre-back and wants to establish himself as first choice for England. Jones has been mainly used in midfield and at full-back by Sir Alex Ferguson since his £16million switch from Blackburn 18 months ago. But the 21-year-old has set his sights on becoming Roy Hodgson's regular choice at centre-half. He told The Mirror: "I would love to think I could be England's centre-half. That's my target. "It's hard to break into the team as a centre-half at United, with Ferdinand and Vidic playing so well. "They're well ahead of me in terms of experience. But I have said all along that I enjoy playing at centre-back. "I'd like to think I can squeeze myself back into the England squad. I have to keep performing well for United and see where that takes me. "But I love putting the shirt on and playing for my country. There's no better honour."
