US national team midfielder Jermaine Jones is reportedly in England, finalizing terms for a loan to Blackburn Rovers that would keep him with Lancashire team through the end of the season.
German magazine Kicker is reporting that a deal is close, with Rovers having an option to buy. Jones' current contract at Schalke runs through 2014 with an annual salary of 3.8 million Euro.
Jones, 29, has not played since November after a falling out with notoriously cantankerous head coach Felix Magath.
