Everton defender John Stones tell Football Focus that the trust shown in him by manager Roberto Martinez has been "massive".
The 19-year-old signed from Barnsley in January 2013 and could make his 20th Premier League appearance of the season against Manchester City on Saturday.
Martinez had tried to sign the teenager when he was in charge of Wigan, before Stones opted for a move to Goodison Park. Six months later, Martinez took charge of Everton and Stones says things have got "better and better".
