Everton push to sign Barnsley fullback Stones

Everton boss David Moyes hopes to land Barnsley fullback John Stones.

The People says the Toffees boss has little cash to spend but fancies a gamble on the England youth star, who is being chased by a handful of top-flight clubs.

The Goodison gaffer is worried about his right-back position - highlighted by Seamus Coleman's injury - and the fact that Stones could also develop into a centre-half makes him very attractive.

Barnsley have so far fended off approaches from Wigan, Fulham and Sunderland for the 18-year-old.

But Everton are the first of the clubs contending to finish in the top four to show real interest in this window.
