Everton’s defender, John Stones has reportedly filed in a transfer request in a bid to force move to Chelsea. Chelsea have been targeting the English center back for weeks and have had bids of of £20m and £26m rejected. Everton manager Roberto Martinez has repeatedly said Stones will not be sold this summer and the club have not responded to the latest development.
The centre-back moved from Barnsley to Everton in February 2013 for about £3M and has since then improved to the admiration of a number of clubs.
He is expected to be in the England squad for next month’s Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Switzerland when it is named on Sunday evening.
