John Stones made the move to Everton on transfer deadline day in January 2013, penning a five-and-a-half year deal.

The defender, aged 18 at the time, arrived at Goodison Park from hometown club Barnsley for a fee of £3million.

Stones developed from a raw talent to a regular Premier League performer and full England international during his time on Merseyside, racking up 95 appearances before completing a record move to Manchester City in August 2016.

A versatile, composed defender, Stones came through the ranks at Oakwell before signing his first professional deal in December 2011.

The following March, aged just 17, he was thrown in for a senior debut against Reading and went on to make 28 appearances for the Tykes, scoring one goal.  

After switching to Goodison Park, Stones made 12 appearances for Everton's Under-21s side in his first season and was among five Toffees players named in England's Under-20 World Cup squad that summer.

He then impressed during pre-season ahead of the 2013/14 campaign, scoring an impudent chipped penalty in the shootout win over Juventus.


He subsequently made his Everton debut in a Capital One Cup win over Stevenage in August.

A long-term injury to Phil Jagielka later that season afforded him an extended run in the side and he impressed in the heart of defence, earning a call up to the England squad and just missing out on a place in the squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The 2014/15 campaign proved a breakout one for the young defender. Appearing for England against Norway and Switzerland, he also made 28 appearances for the Blues in all competitions. 

Arguably the pick of them was the 3-0 win over Manchester United at Goodison Park, with Stones registering his first Everton goal with a brilliant header past David De Gea.

He was suitably rewarded for his efforts at the end of the campaign when he scooped the Young Player of the Season prize at the Club's 10th Annual End of Season Awards evening at St George's Hall.

In 2015/16, Stones played for Everton 41 times and earned a place in the England squad for Euro 2016 the following summer, although he did not feature in any of the national side’s four matches in France.
