Phil Jones has hailed England skipper John Terry as "a great leader" and claims the squad is unified despite the ongoing racism investigation over comments allegedly made by Terry towards QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.

The remarks Terry is alleged to have made towards Ferdinand during Chelsea's recent meeting with QPR are now the subject of a police investigation but Jones, who could win his second cap against Spain on Saturday, is adamant Terry has made no reference to the incident while on England duty.

The Manchester United player said: "Nothing has been said. It's business as normal. John is our captain, he's a great leader, a great player. Everything is fine."
