Everton’s John Stones has confirmed that he will be staying at the club after signing a new contract, dismissing any links of a switch to Arsenal or Tottenham Hotspur, Metro reports.

Both Premier League clubs are currently in search of extra defensive reinforcements, but with this news, it looks as they will need to look elsewhere with the player finalizing a new five-year deal.

Stones, 20, made his way into the Toffees senior side in his first season after making a switch from Barnsley and has been a constant performer for Roberto Martinez.

He said “I am over the moon. It’s just been such a great last season and to get pen to paper on a new deal is a dream come true.

“The last 12 months have been so enjoyable thanks to the faith that the manager has shown in me and all the players. What we achieved was unbelievable. It was a very memorable season and hopefully there’s more to come.”
