The Daily Mirror are reporting that the club are set to open talks with John Stones, and although no timescale has been given to reach an agreement, the club are hopeful the 21 year old will remain at Goodison Park.
There was constant speculation during the summer transfer window, with Chelsea having a couple of offers rejected, and Stones himself handing in a transfer request that was later retracted, added to the uncertainty about the players future.
“The focus for John is to get back from injuries. He’s got an incredible appetite and desire to get back to the levels he showed at the beginning of the season, and at the moment the contract situation is something we do very well here behind the scenes.”
“We keep a track on everything, and the focus for the players is to be ready to perform at the weekend.”
The Everton fans in The Transfer Tavern are delighted with the news, and see him as an important part of the club, and a key element for the club’s future plans to crack the top four.
