News breaking this evening has it that Chelsea will announce the signing of John Stones tomorrow after news emerged that Everton have admitted defeat in their bid to keep Stones. According to the reports, the player has made it clear he wants to leave Everton before the window closes.
It was initially thought Everton will turn down all approaches for the player but it seems the dreaded player power has pulled the string in Chelsea’s favour. With John Terry ageing and Jose Mourinho in need of another centre back, the signing of John Stones ( if it happens ) will be a massive boost to Chelsea’s defense.
Having conceded a total of 9 goals in just four matches in the premier league so far, it is easy to see why Chelsea are keen on signing John Stones. Aside the fact that he is a very good centre back who still have his best years ahead of him, he is also home grown.
He will be a long term and reliable replacement for John Terry who is likely spending his last season in top flight football with Chelsea.
