Pearce had previously claimed Jones, along with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, had rebuffed the idea of playing in the 2013 European Championship in Israel.
"I didn't expect it and I am disappointed," talkSPORT quotes Jones as saying.
"It is simply not true. I have represented the Under-19s, the Under-21s and the seniors. I said from the first day I pulled on an England shirt, it sent shivers down my spine. How he can come out and say I didn't want to play for the Under-21s is beyond me. "It was totally out of my hands. Roy Hodgson came out prior to the Under-21 tournament and said he regarded me as a senior player.
"I went on to play against Ireland and Brazil, so it wasn't a waste of time going with the seniors. Don't forget also I had just come back from a knee injury, for the second time, and I had to manage it in the right way, control it and make sure I wasn't overusing it."
Prior to Jones's comments, the Football Association had previously insisted that the pair didn't go to the tournament as they had already been selected by Roy Hodgson to travel with the senior squad.
