Jones puts his house in order as loan row grows

Embattled JJB executive chairman Sir David Jones has put his main home on the market, in the midst of a storm over a &pound;1.5m loan from Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley.<br /><br />It was revealed yesterday that Jones has been trying to sell his seven bedroomed home in West Yorkshire for three months. The property features a billiards room and a five-car garage and is set in three acres of landscaped grounds.<br /><br />Yesterday a JJB Sports spokesman said his property sale &ldquo;was nothing to do with the business and is a private matter. I believe Sir David put the house on the market three months ago. His family has grown up and moved out of home and as a result he and his wife are downsizing.&rdquo;<br /><br />The retailer has also given its &ldquo;unanimous support&rdquo; for Jones and said it had agreed that his loan from Ashley &ldquo;was a private matter&rdquo;.
