Man City defender Stones eager to see Foden and Grealish play together

Manchester City defender John Stones is eager to see Phil Foden play with new teammate Jack Grealish.

Stones has trained with the pair for England and cannot wait to see the duo team up for Pep Guardiola's side.

“I can only describe it as if they were playing on the street, no fear, playing with happiness," said the England centre-half. “They love the game.

“They make it look easy and I wish I could do some of the stuff that they do!

“If they can link up, like they do in training from what I have seen with England, then I think it is a scary thought to see what they can do."

Stones, fresh from signing a new five-year deal at City worth £250,000-a-week, claims Grealish has already settled into the City dressing room because he is a big personality.

“He's an incredible footballer, raw talent, I think you can see he's fearless in how he plays and very direct," he said.
