The English-born Welsh youth international was bought from Plymouth in the summer of 2011 for a six-figure compensation fee with Liverpool beating off competition from neighbours Everton. A good header of the ball with an eye for a pass the cultured defender was rewarded for his impressive progress with the Academy with a professional contract in May 2012. He made his debut for the U-21s in 2013 and was on the first-team bench against Fulham on 12 May 2013. That autumn he switched international allegiance. Having appeared for Wales, whom he qualified for through his father, at under 17 and 19 level, he rejected an under 21 call-up and instead accepted an invitation to play for England under 19s.
Jones made 21 appearances for Liverpool's under-21 team during the 2013/14 season and also played in four FA Youth Cup matches. After failing to break into the first team picture in the first half of 2014-2015 he had spells on loan at Cheltenham and Accrington Stanley in the second half. He was then loaned to Blackpool for 2015-16 but this was cut short through a knee injury in October and he returned to Melwood for his rehabilitation. When he was fit again the following March he went back to Blackpool but appeared just twice and saw out the season with Liverpool's under 21s. In August 2016 he signed a contract extension although Liverpool refused to confirm the length, he was then loaned to Swindon Town for the season. He appeared 24 times in total, scoring twice, but after picking up a hamstring injury in an away match at Coventry at the end of February he lost his place in the side and didn't feature again except for as an unused substitute. He faced problems off the pitch too, being arrested in the early hours of 12th March following a nightclub brawl in Cheltenham and subsequently charged with assault and committed to the crown court for trial, where he received a community based sentence.
Jones began 2017-18 with Liverpool under 23's and on 31st January 2018 joined Luton Town on a two year deal for an undisclosed fee. Exactly one year later, he was loaned to home town club Plymouth Argyle for the rest of the season, having made just two late substitute appearances in the league for Luton in all that time. Jones appeared ten times for Plymouth, scoring once, but couldn't help prevent relegation to League Two. He remained with Luton, newly promoted to the Championship, for 2019-20 but after just one league start in the first half of the season he joined League Two's Northampton Town on loan for the remainder of the season in the January 2020 transfer window.
