talkSPORT presenter Darren Gough has claimed that Manchester City’s John Stones is a better defender than anyone currently at Tottenham Hotspur.

The former cricketer has suggested that at a potential price of £20million, Stones would represent excellent value for money after he was linked with a move to West Ham United (The Sun) and there should be substantial interest from clubs.

Gough claims that Stones was overpriced when he went to Manchester City for £47.5million from Everton in 2016 (ESPN).

Stones’ prospects of first-team football at the Etihad next season may become more challenging with City reported to have had a £40million bid accepted by Bournemouth for Nathan Ake.

The Telegraph claimed early last month that the England international could emerge as a transfer target for Jose Mourinho’s side.
