Everton boss denies agreement for highly-coveted defender

stonesThe Everton fans in The Transfer Tavern are taking part in a pool tournament and yet again discussing rumours regarding John Stones future at the club.

The Daily Star is reporting that Roberto Martinez has categorically denied that any agreement was made with Stones that he could leave this summer following his decision to change his mind about his transfer request.

Stones future is again a hot topic during this winter’s transfer window, with rumours suggesting that Chelsea could come back and make a massive £45 million offer for the English international. But discussing claims made about a supposed agreement set for the summer, Martinez said:

“That is not true. I would never do that. It would be very negative. If you do that could you imagine the last two months for that player? He would never put a leg in or never challenge for the ball.”

The Everton fans in The Transfer Tavern are well and truly fed up of hearing about the speculation surrounding Stones future, and would like the player to come out and deny that he is seeking a move away from Goodison Park.
