John Stones going nowhere in January

Chelsea expected to bid big on John Stones

Roberto Martinez has issued an early warning to Chelsea not to bother with bids on their target John Stones.

Jose Mourinho's side is hanging on a thin thread with a point to hit relegation and having failed to land Stones in the summer, Mourinho is expected to make yet another attempt but Martinez says they are not losing their star players in January.

“It doesn’t matter if Chelsea come back in for him. We created a squad to see how far we could go over 10 months. January doesn’t come into consideration,” the Spanish coach explained.

“We’ll never lose anyone in January — unless it’s somebody who hasn’t been playing and we need to find a solution. If he’s a top performer, it’s not even a consideration.” said Martinez.

If Everton are to stand by their word, it would only mean that Manchester United's hopes of landing Romelu Lukaku have just been trashed in the bin.

“When you are right in the middle of a season, I think players understand that you can’t sell someone if you can’t replace him.

“I think the uncertainty comes in the summer, where everyone speaks about possibilities.

"January is a window to solve problems with players who are not featuring as often as they feel they should, or to bring in players from a lower league to give them an opportunity.” Martinez concluded.
