Tottenham Hotspur: Man City defender John Stones eager to stay amid Spurs transfer links

Tottenham Hotspur: Man City defender John Stones eager to stay amid Spurs transfer links - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to a report from the Daily Telegraph, Man City defender John Stones is eager to stay at the Etihad Stadium and fight for his place under Pep Guardiola – potentially dealing a blow to Daniel Levy’s hopes of signing a centre-back for Spurs ahead of 2020/2021. 

Stones was tipped for a possible move to Tottenham by journalist James Ducker recently, also writing in the Telegraph, who confirmed that the Lilywhites were in the market for a viable centre-half.

Sky Sports transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, via the Last Word on Spurs podcast, reaffirmed that notion – claiming Levy has in fact got a new defensive ace high on his agenda.

Even though there is a possibility that the Sky Blues could still take up an option to sell Stones this summer, his stance on wanting to fight for a place could provide speed bumps in future Spurs negotiations.

Hailed as ‘unbelievable‘ by ex-Spurs defender Kyle Walker, his teammate Stones is touted as an option for Tottenham – but Levy would have to fork out £30 million according to talkSPORT. 

Boasting a 94% pass accuracy on average over 19/20 and standing at a lofty 6ft 2 (WhoScored), despite some erratic showings recently, Stones is still only 26-years-old and possesses a lot of experience on the biggest stages already.

Who did Villas-Boas replace as Spurs manager in 2012?

Amassing 39 caps for England, Stones was also selected for Gareth Southgate’s 2018 World Cup squad, featuring on seven occasions whilst forming a steady partnership with Man United’s Harry Maguire.

There are pros and cons to a swoop for the homegrown defender, but it remains to be seen whether Levy will in fact lodge a pursuit in his chase for centre-backs.
