Stones' former Toffees teammate Distin has commented that his excellent behaviour on and off the pitch will lead to him moving to a big club in the future, such as the London giants.
Distin told Sky Sports News: "He's young, English, full of qualities and a good guy as well."
"I've often said it's not enough to have quality on the pitch. Off the pitch you need to be grounded and a good person – and he is. So it's not surprising a big club has come in for him"
"It is a compliment and if he carries on the way he has started and keeps working, he'll end up at a big club, that's for sure."
