MANCHESTER UNITED defender Phil Jones could be handed a Premier League lifeline with Newcastle interested, according to reports.
According to the Mirror, Steve Bruce's side are considering a £12million move for the 28-year-old who has become an outcast an Old Trafford.
Jones was tipped to be a future star when Sir Alex Ferguson signed him in 2011 but injuries have plagued his career.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has continued with a back three of Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw, resulting in Jones struggling for playing time.
Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe have been the preferred backups to the first choice trio.
Jones has only made eight appearances for the club this season, his last coming against Tranmere in January, but Newcastle could give the former Blackburn defender a chance to resurrect his career.
