Everton defender John Stones is set to be handed an England World Cup call - if Manchester United's Phil Jones is ruled out due to injury.

The Daily Mail says Roy Hodgson will turn to the 19-year-old if Jones is ruled out. Only 18 months ago, Stones was playing for his hometown club Barnsley before moving to Everton for £2million.

Jones was forced off early during Manchester United’s 3-1 win over Hull on Tuesday with a serious shoulder problem. His club have yet to release an official bulletin on the damage but it was initially suspected to be a dislocation.
