McCarthy happy Stones rejected Chelsea for Everton stay

Everton midfielder James McCarthy is delighted John Stones resisted offers from Chelsea over the summer.

McCarthy is pleased the stopper is still at the club after a number of bids over the summer from Chelsea.

He said: “From day one, the chairman and gaffer said John wasn't for sale and that remained the case.

“It just shows that we want to build. It's a measure of the ambition here at Everton.

“We have got a good squad and we want to continue to build and strengthen and get better – you can see that."
