John Stones faces being dumped by Man City

John Stones' future with Manchester City is in doubt.

The Mirror says City are yet to start talks with the £48million defender about a new contract.

Stones, 25, expected to be offered fresh terms by City this season, with two years left on his current deal.

But negotiations have still not started – and Stones' failure to nail down a regular place in Pep Guardiola's team this season has put a question-mark over his Etihad future.

City lost Vincent Kompany last summer and have been without cruciate ligament victim Aymeric Laporte for most of the season.

The Blues will move into the market for a new centre-back in the summer – and that will put more pressure on Stones even though Otamendi is expected to depart the club.
