Chelsea eye £12mmove for John StonesBy Bobricky 05:00 Sun, 18 May 2014 Comments
Chelsea want to sign Everton
defender John Stones in a £12m deal
before the start of the World Cup according to a report.
The 19-year-old impressed with his
performances for Roberto Martinez's
side last season as he helped them
secure a Europa League place by
finishing in fifth in the Premier League.
Stones's form saw him placed on Roy
Hodgson's standby list for England 's
World Cup campaign, where his
selection for the main squad
depends on the fitness of Phil Jones.
However, Chelsea are ready to make
a swift move for the defender before
the tournament and are hopeful that
the Toffees will agree to a deal
worth £12m, reports
Stones signed for Everton in January
2013 in a £3m move from Barnsley.
