Everton have rejected four bids from Chelsea for their defender John Stones, the most recent being £38m, and their fans were quick to taunt the Blues this weekend, with a new chant sung to the tune of the Beatles "Can't Buy Me Love", replacing the words with "Money Can't Buy You Stones".

The fans were filmed singing the tune prior to the Toffees goalless draw at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Earlier this week, Everton chairman Bill Kenwright has issued a statement in which he says he has rejected a transfer request from Stones, adding the 21-year-old is "not for sale".

The 21-year-old defender's request, which was submitted on Tuesday, was rejected by manager Roberto Martinez on Thursday morning before the club released a statement by Everton chairman Bill Kenwright.


Kenwright said in the statement on the club's official website: "Everton Football Club has rejected a transfer request from John Stones.


"Since the start of the transfer window, we have resolutely turned down offers from another Premier League football club for our player.

"John is not for sale and he will remain a highly valued member of our first team squad."
