Jones has played an integral part in his side's Cup run this season, culminating in an inspired performance at De Kuip as goals to Nicolai Jorgensen, Robin van Persie and Jens Toornstra sealed the win.

Alkmaar's Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Wout Weghorst brought out the best in the 36-year-old but could not prevent his fourth clean sheet of the tournament and Feyenoord's second Dutch Cup in the past three seasons.

With two games remaining in the Eredivisie, van Bronckhorst's men are locked in fourth place and through to the qualifying rounds of the UEFA Europa League.
