Barnsley fullback John Stones is a top target for Chelsea.

The People says Chelsea think they can tie up a deal worth up to £2million for Stones, a strapping 6ft 2in full-back who scored in Barnsley's CapitalOne Cup win over Rochdale earlier in the season.

Chelsea could dangle an extra incentive for Barnsley by offering to leave Stones at his home-town club for the rest of the season.
