Jermaine Jones needed to escape the doghouse at Schalke 04 quickly, and now he's heading to a place where he will be able to play as well as work on his English.

Jones has had his loan move to Premier League side Blackburn go through, meaning he will join fellow U.S. national teamers Tim Howard and Stuart Holden, among others, in the Premier League.

Jones had failed to see regular playing time at Schalke since November after a falling out with manager Felix Magath, who accused him of leaking team secrets to the media.

A native of Germany who earned caps for the German national team before switching to the U.S. national team last year, Jones has earned two caps for the United States and figures to play a key role for the U.S. national team in 2011 .

What do you think of the move? Glad to see Jones heading to England? Excited to see his English improve? Looking forward to his first meeting against Manchester City's Nigel deJong?
