A furious Everton fan was filmed calling wantaway central defender John Stones a ‘f****** rat’ during their 5-3 victory over Barnsley last night.
Stones, 21, who was signed for Everton from yesterday’s opponents Barnsley in 2013, has handed in a transfer request at the Merseyside club after Chelsea made their intentions to sign the England defender public.
The Toffees have since rejected three official transfer bids from the Premier League champions as the club play hardball, standing firm in their desire to retain Stones past Tuesday’s transfer deadline.
But the more avid, die hard and committed football supporters out there don’t take kindly to seeing a player display a desire to leave the club they adore.
Chelsea are still keen on the defender and are reported to submit their final bid on Monday.
