On the confirmation that he will keep hold of the left back for the rest of the campaign, Jones added: “I’ve great respect for Chris, so the fact he trusts us with him is very good and I would be biased, but it is the right thing to do, because he’s getting an education here away from Sheffield United.
“I’m pretty sure it would be a similar education in terms of discipline, in terms of development, in terms of what Chris expects from his teams, or his full backs, or his wing backs, I do exactly the same.
“So I think it’s a parallel experience he would be getting and getting real good game time.
“It’s all an education as he’s still young and he needs to learn and he wants to learn, then the boy could have a fantastic career.
“We’re pretty sure he will go back to Sheffield United and have that great career and what a great manager to be working under, so we’re delighted with that.
“We respect that from Chris, we thank him for it, but we believe that we would do a similar job for him in terms of repaying the faith that they’ve given us.”
