Preston boss Billy Davies is still awaiting a decision on the future of David Jones.Preston boss Billy Davies is still awaiting a decision on the future of David Jones, although the Scot hopes the Manchester United starlet will stay at Deepdale until the end of the season.
The 21-year-old has impressed in The Championship after joining on loan from Old Trafford, although with Sir Alex Ferguson currently focused on dealing with United's poor form, Davies has had to wait for a decision.
United play Wigan on Wednesday night in The Premiership, and Davies is hopeful that when Ferguson's schedule dies down he can keep Jones at North End until the end of the current campaign.
"I've made a call to Sir Alex but with the games that he's got, I'll wait until he's got a little bit of time," Davies said.
"Once he comes back to us, hopefully we'll sit down and discuss us hopefully having David Jones until the end of the season.
"As yet we haven't managed to quite get any conversation about it but I'm sure that'll be done very soon."
