Chelsea target Stone not for sale - Everton boss

Everton manager Roberto Martinez will reject the transfer request from John Stones and tell the defender he will not be sold in this window.

The 21-year-old played in the 5-3 extra time Capital One Cup win at Barnsley 24 hours after telling the club he wanted to leave having seen three bids from Chelsea rejected.

However, Martinez insists their position remains the same as it did when the first offer came in from Stamford Bridge and Stones will not be sold irrespective of his desire to leave to pursue Champions League football under Jose Mourinho.

"The situation with John is very clear. We care about him, we will protect him and make sure we give him everything we can to allow him to enjoy his football," he said.
