Barnsley’s John Stones signed a five-and-a-half-year deal with Everton on this day in 2013.

He went for a transfer fee reported to be in the region of £3m. He was an unused substitute for three Premier League matches that season, beginning on 10 February in a 0–2 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.
