Barnsley due bumper windfall from Man City's John Stones deal

Barnsley are welcoming a bumper windfall from Everton's sale of John Stones to Manchester City.

The Mirror says City have paid Everton £47.5million to take the England international to the Etihad, but the Toffees will have to pay the Tykes a huge slice of that.

As part of the deal to take Stones to Goodison Park, Barnsley cleverly included a sell-on clause of 15-20%.

That means the Championship club will pocket a fee of £7-9million.

Everton have acted fast to replace Stones by targeting Ashley Williams and could pay Swansea over £10million for the Wales captain.
