Manchester United defender Phil Jones is forced to withdraw from England Under-21 duty after picking up shingles and could be out for around four weeks.

Manchester United defender Phil Jones could reportedly be out of action for a month after contracting shingles.

Jones was forced to withdraw from the England Under-21 squad to face Sweden tonight with the virus, also known as adult chickenpox.

Young Lions manager Stuart Pearce has admitted that the news is bitterly disappointing for a player who has been blighted by injuries this season.

He told The Sun: "It's a shame. You want your good players to be here.

"But Phil has picked up shingles and there's not a lot we can do about it. But it means someone else gets a chance."

United could now be without Jones for both legs of their upcoming Champions League tie against Real Madrid.
