Everton

Man United fighting rivals for signature of Premier League defender

stones44444Fans in the Transfer Tavern are finding themselves in a heated argument today, as they debate which potential move would be best for one of England’s brightest young stars.

One of the big transfer stories set to do the rounds during the summer months looks set to place Everton central defender John Stones in the middle of a tug-of-war between the two Manchester clubs.

Our football oracle is present in the Transfer Tavern this afternoon and as he flicks through the Manchester Evening News he spots a piece by local hack Anthony Jepson, who claims the city rivals are set for a straight shoot-out for the services of the ex-Barnsley defender, due to the player’s desire to stay in the north.

Stones has endured a reasonable season with the Toffees during the current campaign and although his performances have come in for some criticism of late, there is little denying his undoubted potential.

One City fan is throwing some darts on the Tavern’s dart board and he thinks his club should do all they could to secure Stones ahead of his best years and to get one over United.
