Has Phil Jones played last game for Manchester United? Red Devils defender LEFT OUT of Premier League squad for 2022/23 season by Erik ten Hag

    Phil Jones may have played his last game for Manchester United.

    The 30-year-old defender was left out of the Red Devils’ 25-man Premier League squad for the 2022/23 season.

    It means Jones will not be eligible to play in the top-flight for the entire campaign and his contract runs out in June 2023.

    United do have an option to extend the Englishman’s deal by 12 months, but that looks unlikely, given the centre-back has not earned a place in Erik ten Hag’s league squad.

    Jones can still play for the Red Devils in domestic cup competitions but, again, his chances of featuring under the Dutch manager appear slim.

    It is increasingly possible Jones, who was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson in 2011, has made his last outing in a Man United shirt.

    His recent years at Old Trafford have been forgettable, to say the least.

    Jones made his first appearance in two years during a 1-0 defeat to Wolves in January amid an injury crisis for interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

    The defender played for England at the 2018 World Cup but has since suffered a dramatic fall from grace.

    Jones looks set to be available on a free transfer next summer, after United failed to sell him earlier this year.
