The agents row over Everton defender John Stones is escalating.

The Daily Mail says the 20-year-old's agent, Georgina Lillis, daughter of former Huddersfield midfielder Mark, has started legal proceedings against WMG for allegedly attempting to entice Stones away.

The fall-out has seen Stones delay signing a new contract with Everton until October when his contract with Lillis's Star Management expires.
