Sylvain Distin is sure John Stones is on track to sign for “a big club.”
Distin: “He’s young, English, full of qualities and a good guy as well.
“I’ve often said it’s not enough to have quality on the pitch. Off the pitch you need to be grounded and a good person – and he is.
“So it’s not surprising a big club has come in for him. It is a compliment and if he carries on the way he has started and keeps working, he’ll end up at a big club, that’s for sure.
“He hasn’t played a full season yet. He needs to become a little more experienced, understanding of the Premier League and know a bit more about himself”
Distin has took some flak on Twitter for his comments and responded with;
Will never have a dig at Everton, too much respect and passion for this club. Any of the lads will tell you that…

Fans have been tweeting GrandOldTeam their opinion;
@grandoldteam Alright having a problem with manager but don't start being petty when you have left. Not good. Depends how it was said really

@grandoldteam He hasn't said anything offensive to EFC there. If you think otherwise than you really are bitter

@grandoldteam Reasonable and fair. Doesn't call for him to leave or anything.

@grandoldteam let's be honest we are not a big club. But we are OUR club and that will do for me.
