Stones set for new City deal

Defender John Stones is set to be offered a new deal by Manchester City after winning over his manager Pep Guardiola.

The 26-year-old England international fell down the pecking order at the Etihad last season and, with the summer additions of Rúben Dias and Nathan Aké to the City squad, many expected Stones to leave the Etihad, with persistent links to his former coach at Arsenal, Mikel Arteta.

However, he regained his place in the side, and has made seven starts during September, during which time the side has only conceded one goal to Wolves..

That has now convinced Guardiola that he is worth a new deal on improved terms.

Stones began his professional career with Barnsley before moving to Everton in 2013. He made 77 appearances or the Toffees until, in 2016 City paid £47.5 million for his services joining them on a six-year deal. He has 39 England caps.
