Manchester City lead the queue for the 22-year-old but Chelsea are once again being linked having had a £37m bid for the England player turned down 12 months ago.

Everton appear to have resigned themselves to losing star striker Romelu Lukaku, but are ready block any moves for Stones and are determined to keep hold of him.
