Former England U-21 manager Peter Taylor says that John Stones should stay at Everton for one more year despite Chelsea’s interest.
Taylor is convinced that John Stones should remain at Everton for at least one more year. According to Taylor’s words, Stones will not have a possibility to play regularly at Chelsea and this can slow down his development. However, former England U-21 manager is aware that Chelsea can make an offer which would be hard to refuse.
Taylor told Sky Sports:
“I would say at the moment probably staying at Everton if he’s guaranteed a first-team place, for John’s education and progression he’s probably better off staying at Everton.”
”But who would ever turn down going to work for Mourinho? Especially on the defensive side of it, being in the same changing room as John Terry.
“He’s going to improve either way, but at the moment maybe if he could hang around for another year, play 38 league matches for Everton.”
“I think he would be a better player at the end of the season.”
