Blackburn defender Phil Jones
The newly crowned Premier League champions announced Monday that the 19-year-old Englishman will sign a five-year deal after returning from the European Under-21 Championship.
He passed a medical examination last week before traveling with the England squad to Denmark.
Even before the transfer was announced, United striker Wayne Rooney described Jones as “one of the toughest defenders I played against last season.”
Jones will face stiff competition for a spot in central defense from Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling.
