David Jones: Pleased with his loan move to Blackburn Rovers

The 28-year old has made 18 appearances for the Latics this season, but he has found himself out of Roberto Martinez's plans in recent weeks and was allowed to move to Ewood Park until the end of the season.

Jones has suffered defeat in both of his appearances since the switch but he says he is thankful to Martinez for letting him leave Wigan.

"The manager listened to my thoughts. In a way, he did me a favour by letting me go when he perhaps needed some cover," said Jones.

"He listened to what I wanted and what was best for me. The opportunity came and I was very eager to take it so I'm happy it went through."

The former Wolves midfielder came off the bench to make his Rovers debut in Saturday's 3-2 defeat to Peterborough, but he says he was pleased to be back playing football again.

He said: "It was a very surreal couple of days with the loan being pushed through quite quickly. I was delighted to get some game time and I was just disappointed with the result.

"I train really hard and prepare myself well. You want to be playing on a regular basis and, in recent weeks at Wigan, I haven't done. After having a chat with the manager, I felt it was a good decision and a good opportunity to come to such a good club."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
