MANCHESTER UNITED out­cast Phil Jones fears a po­ten­tial move to Burn­ley in Jan­uary is un­der threat amid a planned takeover of the Clarets.

Burn­ley boss Sean Dy­che has pen­cilled in a loan swoop for the for­got­ten Eng­land de­fender as he pre­pares to face more in­ter­est in his prize-as­set James Tarkowski.

West Ham re­main keen to sign the £40mil­lion-rated Tarkowski but should a £200m takeover at Burn­ley by Egyp­tian busi­ness­man Mo­hamed El Kashashy and UK sports lawyer Chris Far­nell go through, they will no longer have to sell.

That would leave Jones in limbo and clear the way for Cham­pi­onship Derby and Mid­dles­brough to make a move for the ver­sa­tile ex-Black­burn star.
