Manchester United are open to late loan offers for Phil Jones ahead of this summer’s transfer deadline.
The Northern Echo reports Newcastle boss Steve Bruce is ‘hopeful’ to get a new loan and it is said the former United defender turned manager is keen to add another centre-back to the ranks and Jones could fit that bill.
The article confirms previous reports that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would also be willing to approve a loan for Jones.
Newcastle have been regularly linked with Jones this summer, but with the northeast side currently strapped for cash, a permanent deal seems highly unlikely – Jones’ contract with United expires in 2023 and he has not played for the club since January 2020 .

There could be another twist in the Jesse Lingard saga this summer as The Mirror reports David Moyes plans to meet with the United playmaker to discuss a late transfer, but it’s rumored that yet another loan offer would be the Irons’ proposed deal.
The MEN understand that Lingard has not been given a final decision on whether to stay at United and that the 28-year-old’s club value is £25m, so the inquiry into West Ham’s loan is likely to be unsatisfactory.
However, there may be more updates to come about Lingard’s future.
