    The pair's father Jean-Francois Hernandez also played for Atletico between 2000 and 2001. Before April's derbi between Atletico and Madrid, Marca claimed on its cover that the Santiago Bernabeu outfit planned to pay the left-back's €24 million release clause and take him across the Spanish capital in the summer - breaking an unwritten gentleman's agreement which prevents such transfers between the neighbouring clubs.

McDermott would not say that Jones will win a starting job right away, but the thinking is that he can be a good complement to Watkins (if healthy) next season and possible insurance if Watkins walks in free agency in 2018.
