Grimsby Live has claimed that League Two side Grimsby Town are taking an interest in midfielder David Jones, who was recently released by Sheffield Wednesday.
Grimsby Live has reported that recently released Sheffield Wednesday midfielder David Jones is attracting interest from League Two side Grimsby Town.
Jones has left Sheffield Wednesday, upon the expiry of his contract at the end of the 2018/19 Championship season, and the Mariners are reportedly looking to swoop to bring the experienced midfielder in on a free transfer. Suggestions have been made that the 34-year-old could seal his move to the League Two side at the start of next week.
Jones played for Premier League side Burnley when Grimbsy boss Michael Jolley was working with the club as coach of the club’s Under-23s side, and a move for Jones would see the two link up once again.
Jones comes with bags of Football League experience, playing over 400 career games for a number of clubs up and down the leagues and all across the country.
He started his career in the youth academy at Manchester United, where he went on to make four appearances. During his time with Manchester United, he spent time on loan with Preston North End, Derby County and Dutch side NEC, before making a permanent move to Derby in 2007.
Jones spent just one full season at Derby before joining Wolves, where he remained for three seasons from 2008 to 2011. In Summer 2011, Jones joined Wigan Athletic, spending half a season on loan with Blackburn Rovers in 2013 before making a move to Burnley.
Jones played 131 games for Burnley in three seasons for the Clarets before joining Sheffield Wednesday, where he had played for three years prior to his release.
