LUKAKU: STONES SHOULD STAY
Everton striker Romelu Lukaku is convinced John Stones would be better off staying at Goodison Park rather than securing a move to Stamford Bridge this summer.
The defender has been linked with a move to the Premier League champions Chelsea - who have made several bids for Stones, with the most recent £30m bid rejected by the Toffees.
However, Lukaku hopes Stones remains with the club and not join his former side.
"To be fair John is in a good situation at a good club which believes in him," Lukaku, who left Stamford Bridge last summer, told several national newspapers.
"He is playing and is learning a lot from Phil Jagielka. He's been here two years now but this is the year where he really needs to confirm he is the top player he can be.
"This club has massive potential, with the players we have and the ambition the manager has. He is in a good place. He's on to a good thing."
