Darragh MacAnthony comments on future of Liverpool and Tottenham-linked sensation

Peterborough United owner Darragh MacAnthony has commented on the future of Ricky-Jade Jones amid reported interest from Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, ahead of the January transfer window.

Jones, 17, has starred for The Posh after breaking into the League One side this season. Despite only turning 17 in November, the midfielder has clocked up six first-team appearances in all competitions. He has scored on two occasions.

The midfielder found the back of the net in a 2-1 win over Cambridge United in the EFL Trophy, as well as netting in an FA Cup win over Stevenage. He is being heavily linked with English biggest clubs, not least Spurs and Liverpool.

The Daily Mail have claimed Tottenham, Liverpool and even Manchester United want Jones, who is rated at £2million by Peterborough as per the report. MacAnthony discussed his future when asked by a fan on Twitter.

TBR’s view – Jones can become Tottenham’s next Dele Alli

For just £2million, a 17-year-old who is already scoring for a third-tier side and becoming a threat for The Posh is a bargain. By the time Tottenham paid £5million for Alli, he had scored 24 goals in 88 games for MK Dons.

What To Expect From England At Euro 2020?!

Jones needs to break into Peterborough’s starting eleven on a regular basis and continue to show his class. Can he go as far as Alli? It remains to be seen, but Spurs are right to keep their eye on the attacking midfielder.
