His stats from last season are amazing!

Chelsea’s £30 million bid for Everton defender John Stones was flatly refused by Everton this week, here’s why they're desperate to keep him and why Jose Mourinho won’t give up trying to sign him!

• John Stones’ tackles won percentage was higher than Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic AND John Terry – only Kurt Zouma beat him!

• He made more clearances than any Chelsea defenders, averaging 6.3 per game!

• The Yorkshireman managed almost double the amount of interceptions per game compared to John Terry or Gary Cahill, but he trails Cesar Azpilicueta!

• The Everton defender made more blocks per game than ANY Chelsea defender!

• The England man has a better pass completion rate than ANY of the Chelsea defenders!

Conclusion – John Stones is AMAZING!
