Everton, Arsenal invited to bid for Man City defender Stones

Manchester City are ready to listen to offers for John Stones.

The Sun says Stones could be offered an escape route to ex-club Everton from his Manchester City misery.

The out-of-favour England defender is currently Pep Guardiola's FIFTH choice centre-back at the Etihad.

And Everton would be interested in a cut-price deal, having sold Stones to City in a £47million move back in 2016 while Arsenal have also been heavily linked.

Sources close to Stones say the unhappy 26-year-old will consider his options this summer and is open to a return to Goodison Park after falling down the pecking order at City.

Stones was left on the bench for Thursday's thumping 4-0 win over newly crowned Premier League champions Liverpool with Guardiola picking 19-year-old Eric Garcia.
