England defender Phil Jones is not feeling threatened by Victor Lindelof’s arrival at Manchester United.

Jones was born in 
Preston and grew up in Clayton-le-Woods. He attended Balshaw’s High School in Leyland, and played for Ribble Wanderers Under-10s before joining Blackburn.

Sweden international Lindelof may expect to be a regular at the heart of defence after his £30.75million move from Benfica, alongside Eric Bailly.

But Jones said: “Competition is always good – I’ve spoken to the manager.”
