Stones at the perfect club - Martinez

Everton manager Roberto Martinez says defender John Stones is at "the perfect football club" and that the game's authorities "need to act" to prevent instability during the transfer window.

The Toffees have turned down three bids from Chelsea for the 21-year-old, and on Thursday informed the England international that his transfer request had also been rejected.

According to Martinez, there are "more important values in football than money" and he insists Stones will be ready to play against Tottenham on Saturday.
