Would Phil Jones make Everton better?

Jones has had injury problems at United, and it is going to be tough for him to get back into the team.

The Englishman is 29 now, so theoretically he is at the top of his game.

However, for the weekly wage of £100,000, it would be a massive risk for Everton to sign Jones even on a free transfer.
