Football: Boss praises positive contributions made by Ledley and Parry.
The view of manager Jones is: "They are going nowhere."
Cardiff City are adamant neither player will be leaving unless clubs come up with big money, but Jones understands why others want the pair.
"Neal Ardley summed it up for me when he came back to Cardiff City after months away," said Jones.
"Ards left as a player and returned to become our youth Academy manager.
"He picked out a number of players he felt had matured as men while he had been away.
"Neal felt Joe was maybe a bit wishy-washy when he left, a boy making progress as a professional footballer.
"Now, of course, he is a man. He has become stronger this season, mentally and physically.
"His body is developing and he is gaining knowledge all the time.
"Neal said Parry, too, looks a different player.
"He, too, is stronger and has done well since we asked him to move from playing in a wide midfield position to a more attacking role.
"They are two of our players who have made real progress since last season."
