Stones wants to remain and challenge for a starting spot.

Manchester City defender John Stones intends to stay at the Etihad Stadium and force his way back into Pep Guardiola’s plans rather than look to leave.

The Telegraph with the report, it would seem John believes he can win himself back in to the good graces of Pep Guardiola. I have long said this season it seems Stones lacked confidence and do think it would behoove him to stay and train and fight for a spot.

John is a solid defender and can do the job. He would probably be fourth or fifth choice, but spot starts in league cup and GA cup fixtures could see him regain some spirit and confidence.

We’ll see where we end up with him.
