Everton boss Roberto Martinez has reiterated that John Stones won’t be sold to Chelsea or Manchester United in January.
The highly-rated centre back was the subject of intense interest from Chelsea inside the summer time, and while United have also been linked, the Toffees have held firm in spite of several significant dollars bids and a transfer request in the (come to Cheap FIFA 16 coins) player.
Chelsea;s slumping fortunes since then have fuelled additional speculation over Stones but Martinez;s stance has not changed.
;It doesn;t matter if Chelsea come back in for him. We created a squad to find out how far we could go more than ten months. January doesn;t come into consideration,; he told quite a few newspapers.
;We;ll in no way shed everyone in January – unless it;s somebody who hasn;t been playing and we need to seek out a solution. If he;s a top performer, it;s not even a consideration.;
Chelsea;s defeat at Leicester on Monday night was their ninth in 16 matches as their poor start to the 2015-16 campaign continued.
Stones; assured displays for the Toffees have led to him being tipped as a solution for Jose Mourinho;s ailing Premier League champions, (go to fifa 16 coins) but that would leave Everton using a big hole to fill inside the heart of their defence.
;When you are right inside the middle of a season, I think players understand that you can;t sell someone if you can;t replace him,; Martinez added.
;I think the uncertainty comes within the summer season, where everyone speaks about possibilities.
;January is a window to solve problems with players who are not featuring as often as they feel they should, or to bring in players from a lower league to give them an (vist Fifa coins) opportunity.;
