John Stones: Eager to learn at Everton

The 18-year-old right-back has signed a five-year deal with the Toffees, who paid £3m to recruit him from Barnsley.

"I've been impressed with Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines, Sylvain Distin - these are consistent players, very highly rated players, international players who I've got the luck to work with now," said Stones.

"Steven Pienaar, Leon Osman, I could go on all day. I'm looking forward to learning from these players. The experience they've got is priceless and to train with them and learn from them will benefit me, no doubt."

England Under-19 international Stones did admit to being nervous at leaving Barnsley but feels he has joined the right club.

"There are a few nerves because it's a new challenge for me," added Stones. "Every player wants to play in the Premier League and I've left an amazing club which is very close to my heart and left some very good people back there who I can't thank enough.

"I've joined an amazing club, I'm here at Everton now and I'm looking forward to every minute of it. I've been very impressed with everything I have seen at Finch Farm already. Now the hard work begins."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
