Roberto Martinez: Chelsea can forget about signing John Stones


Everton boss Roberto Martinez has confirmed that defender John Stones will not join Chelsea this summer.

On Thursday, club chairman Bill Kenwright revealed that the club has rejected a transfer request from the youngster.

And Martinez says Everton is the "perfect environment and the perfect place" for the 21-year-old.

"He will be [ready to play]. He's in the perfect environment," Martinez told reporters on Friday.

"The chairman was really strong, John knows where he is. We are the perfect environment and the perfect place for John.

"The way to protect each other is just to focus on the next game, on the importance of the three points. Forget about the speculation, forget about the transfer. Nothing is going to happen, so everyone can relax.

"We have our own plans and our own path to develop John. He's only 21, he's got loads in front of him. There's loads more to come, he's part of a very, very talented young group. He's in the perfect environment and he's going to understand where we are.

"What we want now is a bit of stability and the quicker we get a bit of normality. That will be better for everyone."
