John Stones is ready to consider handing in a transfer request if Everton continue to stand in his way of a dream move to Chelsea, reports The Sun.

Jose Mourinho has already seen three bids knocked back by the Toffees with the latest, worth £30million, failing earlier this week.

Roberto Martinez has stood firm on his insistence that the 21-year-old is not for sale, but sources close to the defender say he is keen to make the move to west London.

Unsurprisingly, he is growing frustrated with Everton's hard-nosed approach and is considering whether or not making his intentions public could help force through a deal.

The England international believes he is ready to play for a top Premier League club like Chelsea and is confident of competing against Gary Cahill, John Terry and Kurt Zouma for a starting spot.

Breaking ranks

Players rarely hand in transfer requests. Not only do they forfeit hefty loyalty bonuses but they also run the risk of alienating themselves from their current fans.

Stones must be certain that such a move would guarantee a transfer to Chelsea in the current transfer window before taking the plunge.

New bid

However, there is a good chance that he may not need to do such a thing as some reports have suggested that the Blues are willing to up their offer to a staggering £40m.

That would make Stones the most expensive defender in British history and would also meet the asking price reportedly set by Everton.
