Chelsea seems to have find themselves in a very difficult situation with rumours making the rounds claiming Everton have rejected a transfer request handed in by summer target John Stones yesterday.
According to Daily Mail, the Toffee chairman Bill Kenwrigh told the club’s official website that the Toffee had turned down the player’s request.
“Everton Football Club has rejected a transfer request from John Stones.
“Since the start of the transfer window, we have resolutely turned down offers from another Premier League football club for our player.
“John is not for sale and he will remain a highly valued member of our first team squad.”
The young starlet moved to Eveton in 2013 and has developed to becoming one of the most sort after defender in England. Chelsea’s boss Jose Mourinho has previously made bids of £20million, £26million and £30million for the young starlet but was rebuffed by the Mersey club.
It is reported that the SW6 outfit is planning to make a bigger offer of £40million for his signature, but with the latest development, the Blues will now have to look elsewhere for other alternative.
