Everton boss David Moyes is ready to bid for Barnsley fullback John Stones.

The People says the 18-year-old has caught the attentions of several top-flight clubs, including Manchester City and Chelsea.

But it is Everton who are doing the running as they ready themselves for a £2million bid in January.

Barnsley manager Keith Hill is desperate to hang on to Stones, but a big-money offer would prove difficult to turn down.
