Defender eyes Premier League switch

Preston defender Billy Jones has revealed his desire to leave the club following their relegation from the Championship. A number of clubs are thought to be waiting in the wings to sign the highly-rated Jones following Preston's drop into League One. Everton have been credited with an interest in the 24-year-old and Jones admits he would love the chance to play in the Premier League. "I'm going to miss Preston but unfortunately I feel as though I have to move on, improve personally as a player and hopefully get a crack at the Premier League," Jones told the club's official website. "I'm hoping that maybe a Premier League team out there is willing to give me a chance. "I think I have proven myself in the Championship but it is whether teams are going to give me a chance. The plan is to try and get there if I can but if not then maybe a top Championship team which could get promoted to the top flight."
