HOW ACQUIRED: Acquired via trade with Chicago on January 14, 2016.
Left back is a notoriously difficult position to fill, and there are few in MLS who can match the cyclonic activity kicked up by Jones along that flank. His first MLS season with Chicago in 2015 revealed a defender with pure wingback sensibilities who lives to push into the opponent’s final third as an added attacker. A capable crosser with good instincts, Jones doesn’t skimp on the defensive end either as a capable heads up defender who will routinely run down attacks from seemingly nowhere.
INTERNATIONAL: Jones made his Trinidad & Tobago debut at the tender age of 19, and he’s been an integral part of the Soca Warriors’ setup ever since. He was a first choice fullback for both the 2013 and 2015 Gold Cups, and he scored both his international goals in the latter tournament. His last goal tied a scintillating 4-4 match against Mexico in the final seconds.
OUTSIDE MLS: Jones rode onto the regional scene with popular T&T club W Connection, where he worked his way up to team captain by his fifth season in 2013. After a brief 2014 loan to Finnish club HJK Helsinki, Jones moved to the Chicago Fire prior to the 2015.
