      Liverpool swoop for centre-back Jones

      Published 23:00 10/06/11
      By Alan Nixon

      Liverpool have signed Plymouth centre-half Lloyd Jones - just days after missing out on his namesake and fellow stopper Phil.

      Reds manager Kenny Dalglish agreed a six-figure compensation fee with the cash-strapped Devon club and sorted out a three-year contract with the Wales youth international.

      Jones (Lloyd, not Phil) impressed Liverpool during a trial at the end of the season and Dalglish took time out from chasing his big-money targets to talk the kid into signing.

      Several other leading clubs, including Everton, had an interest in Jones but the lure of Anfield and Dalglish won the day.

      He's 15, I don't think he signed him with the idea of playing him this season.

      It's the short term mentality that persists and persists, it's a hard perception for some to grasp, you can't just look at tomorrow, you need to look at all our tomorrows.

      Welcome to LFC Lloyd, hope you flourish here!


      What's with the England flag?!  :P  He's Welsh!

      ...According to The Daily Mirror, “Jones (Lloyd, not Phil) impressed Liverpool during a trial at the end of the season and Dalglish took time out from chasing his big-money targets to talk the kid into signing.” Lloyd Jones is in fact, like Phil Jones, a centerback and he is in fact a Welshman that Liverpool managed to sign from Plymouth.

      I'll give him a few more weeks.  If he doesn't cut it, get rid :f_tongueincheek:

      edit: @whyohwhy - in FM when real players in the game retire they are replaced by randomly regenerated players with fairly generic names, Roddenberry just so happened to get a Lloyd Jones who was also a CB.  If you look up the top, you'll see the game year is 2043 and this particular Lloyd Jones (who is English instead of Welsh) is only 27yo.  It's not actually him.  

      I'd say it's a coincidence but how much cooler does it sounds saying that it's an omen that he will be a legendary player for us :D

      Can't have everything, thought the name was enough. He might just make it to the end of my FM10 career, planning to 'retire' at the end of this season or next.  All depends on whether I have the chance to win my 10th PL in a row.  Finally lost Steven Gerrard this season as well, retired aged 63.

      We run rule over Liverpool starlet Lloyd Jones

      Sky Sports Scout is our exciting feature where we scour the globe looking out for the best talent and bring you a report on what we find.

      Our Scout will report back and you can comment on what you think of our appraisal.

      You can only nominate a player by emailing here, including the word 'Scout' in your subject line and please check to make sure we have not already covered the player.

      NAME: Lloyd Jones
      AGE: 17 (7th October, 1995)
      BORN: Plymouth, England
      POSITION: Defender
      CLUB: Liverpool
      FACTS: Began his career with Plymouth

      Sky Sports Scout Ratings:
      0-10 - No hoper
      11-20 - Should look elsewhere
      21-30 - Might not make it
      31-40 - Has work to do
      41-50 - Keep an eye on him
      51-60 - Great prospect
      61-70 - On his way to the top
      71-80 - Already World-class

      The latest player under our scout's gaze is Liverpool's Lloyd Jones.

      The scout reports...

      We check on Liverpool youngster Lloyd Jones, considered one of the gems of the youth set-up at Anfield.

      Jones, though, is an adopted Merseysider as he is originally from Cornwall. Born in Plymouth, Jones began his career with his hometown club.

      However, by the time he reached his early teens the commanding youngster was already attracting Premier League interest and at 15 when the decision was made by Plymouth to sell, he had a number of options.

      But then Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish stepped into the battle himself and personally oversaw the capture of Jones - which came just days after they missed out to namesake Phil to Manchester United.

      Liverpool paid an initial £20,000 to Plymouth although add-ons would see the deal rise considerably higher for the Welsh youth international.

      Jones has progressed rapidly for the club despite Dalglish's departure - , impressing with their Under-18s before becoming a regular with the Under-21s.

      Jones was then handed a squad number by Brendan Rodgers and named on the bench for their Premier League match with Fulham, to further emphasise his potential.

      On the back of being included in the squad, Jones has also been offered a new three-year deal to commit his future to the Liverpool.

      Not 18 until October, Jones could very well have made his league debut before his birthday.

      He is a commanding centre-half who, stature and skill wise, is well beyond his tender years. His main feature is his dominance in the air - but he is anything but a lumbering giant.

      Graceful when in possession, many onlookers at Melwood have likened him to legendary figures such as Ron Yeats and Alan Hansen, which is just some indication of how high a regard Jones is held in.

      The scout says...


      A real gem of a young defender, Liverpool know they could very well have something really special on their hands in Jones.

      And the player himself could not want for a better place to learn his trade and be given time to progress - this lad won't be moving, but is certainly one to remember.

      The Scout rating...

      Shooting: 6 out of 10

      Passing: 6 out of 10

      Tackling: 7 out of 10

      Heading: 8 out of 10

      Pace: 7 out of 10

      Vision: 6 out of 10

      Current ability: 6 out of 10

      Potential ability: 10 out of 10

      OVERALL SCOUT RATING: 56/80

      Current value: £2million

      Potential value: £30million
