Jones has found first team opportunities restricted this season following the impressive form of both James McCarthy and JAmes McArthur.
With his contract up at the end of the season it is expected that the move to Blackburn represents the chance to earn himself a permanent switch for next season.
Speaking about the move, Jones said: "The manager listened to my thoughts. In a way, he did me a favour by letting me go when he perhaps needed some cover (in midfield),
"He listened to what I wanted and what was best for me. The opportunity came and I was very eager to take it so I'm happy it went through.
"I train really hard and prepare myself well. You want to be playing on a regular basis and, in recent weeks at Wigan, I haven't done. After having a chat with the manager, I felt it was a good decision and a good opportunity to come to such a good club."
Wiganer.net would like to wish David Jones all the best as he was certainly a player who gave 100% everytime he put on the Wigan shirt.
