Palmer cited several costly mistakes made by Jones as the prime factor behind his decision to put the 32-year-old up for sale.
But the shot-stopper is adamant he has earned The Hatters more points than he has thrown away and insists he would like to stay at Edgeley Park.
However, Jones concedes he does not want to rot in the reserves and will consider stepping down a division if necessary.
"I'm in no hurry to go, especially with a year-and-a-half left on my contract but if the manager doesn't want me, and it means being in the reserves for 18 months, then I'd rather leave," stated Jones.
"He says I have cost the team some points this season because of some mistakes. I would disagree and say I've helped get some points.
"I'd like to join a team that is at least in Division Two but if it means dropping down a division to earn a new contract and regular first team football, then I'm prepared to do it."
Since Jones was placed on the transfer list at the end of last month, he has retained his place in the Stockport starting line-up for a brace of Division Two fixtures.
