Jones has been used as a right-back, centre-half and central midfielder since arriving at Manchester United in 2011.
But the 24-year-old has impressed at centre-back this season, forming a formidable partnership at the back Marcos Rojo.
And the England international insists he no longer wants to be seen as a utility man and is keen to stay at centre-back.
Phil Jones has revealed he wants to continue his Manchester United career at centre-back
“I always used to say it was nice to play in different positions," Jones told the Manchester Evening News.
"I was young and playing anywhere was a bonus for me then. When you are at Manchester United you play anywhere.
“But this has definitely been one of the best seasons for me in terms of playing in a set role, getting in and staying in in that one position.
“I am not the kind of person who can come in and play one game, be out for a couple of games then come back in and everyone expects you to be all singing and dancing with no flaws or mistakes.

Phil Jones has impressed for Manchester United this season
“I have always been a player and always will be the kind who needs to be playing regularly. That is how you get the best out of me. Hopefully I have proved that this season.
“I think my days as Mr Versatile are long gone now. I don't think the manager would see me as playing right back or centre midfield any more. Who knows if there was a time when I had it do it I would be more than capable of adapting but centre-back will always be my position now.
“He [Mourinho] hasn't told me that but you always get vibes and I think that is obvious now.
“I knew it had to end but it has happened gradually and I always knew it would be like that. I have not played right back or centre midfield for a long time.”
