David Luiz believes that Manchester United defender Phil Jones has the potential to become an important member of the England squad.

Chelsea defender David Luiz has revealed that he has been impressed by the development of Manchester United's Phil Jones.

Jones, 20, has impressed a number of pundits with his performances since his switch to United from Blackburn Rovers in the summer of 2011.

While he is not in the England squad that will take on Luiz's Brazil tomorrow night because of illness, he has been tipped to become a "big player" for his country by the Blues centre-back.

"I really like Phil Jones. I know he is not in this squad, but I like watching him. I like the way he is developing. He can become a big player for England," he told the Daily Mail.

Jones has made five appearances at senior international level.
