Mourinho silent on transfer window

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho refuses to respond to a question about Everton boss Roberto Martinez's criticism of the transfer window amid the champions' continued pursuit of defender John Stones.

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.

Everton boss Martinez has been critical of Chelsea's approach and has said that football authorities "need to act" to prevent instability during the transfer window.
