Jose Mourinho has told reporters there will be no follow up bid for John Stones.

Chelsea’s initial bid of £20million was turned down just under two weeks ago, with Everton boss Roberto Martinez insisting that Stones was not for sale.

A follow up £26m offer that rejected outright, and now Mourinho has ruled out a third offer for the 21-year-old.

When asked if there would be a third bid he said ‘no’ and added: “I don’t speak about players from other clubs, especially now competition starts.

“It starts for us and Arsenal now [Community Shield] and next week starts for everyone. It’s enough for me.”
