Salford City are battling it out with Northampton Town for the signature of Lloyd Jones, according to Alan Nixon.
The 25-year-old made seven appearances as the Cobblers won promotion from League Two in 2019/20, but was unable to prevent them from falling straight back down this season.
Jones signed for Town in December on a deal until the end of the season, before making 27 appearances for the Northamptonshire outfit as they were relegated down to League Two.
With the defender now facing an uncertain future, Salford are looking to battle it out with Northampton for the centre-half’s signature.
Both sides will be keen to mount promotion pushes from League Two next season, and it seems as if they have a battle in this particular deal too.
Jones came through the ranks at Liverpool, before having loan spells with the likes of Cheltenham, Accrington, Blackpool and Swindon.
A permanent move to Luton Town then followed, before loan spells with Plymouth and Northampton eventually materialised.
Jones knows Northampton well having been there for two seasons, and it would be a positive signing to get this one over the line.
Salford are no strangers to signing players though, and everybody knows how big of a budget they have, so it could come down to who offers the most money here.
He’s at a good age and still has time to develop as a player, so it would be a useful signing for both the short-term and long-term for whoever signs him.
