Premier League and Championship scouts visit Windsor Park to watch Northern Ireland star Jordan Jones: reports

Northern Ireland midfielder Jordan Jones made his first senior international start on Saturday and his performance was good enough to cement interest from two English clubs, according to reports.

The Kilmarnock winger has been impressing in the Scottish Premiership this season and the Daily Mail report that scouts from Premier League club Brighton and Championship promotion-chasers Aston Villa arrived in Belfast to watch Northern Ireland beat South Korea 2-1.

The article says that Jones' display at Windsor Park was good enough to impress the visiting onlookers and earned him a spot on both club's summer shopping lists.

Jones has scored four Scottish Premiership goals this season with performances that were enough to attract a January bid from Rangers.

The former Middlesbrough man has just one year to run on his current deal at Rugby Park and was also the subject of an enquiry from Bristol City at the turn of the year.
