Wednesday was a difficult night for Everton defender John Stones.

Having handed in a transfer request in an effort to get a move to Chelsea before the transfer window closes, the 21-year-old was picked by Roberto Martinez to play in the Capital One Cup win over Barnsley, but Stones’ inclusion failed to pacify all the travelling supporters.

One Everton fan posted video abusing the defender as a “rat” after the Barnsley game, while a handful of Evertonians have turned to Twitter to report an incident which happened in a service station long after the match finished.

According to the social media updates, Stones burst out crying when fans addressed him about his future at Goodison Park.

Stones, who was with Steven Naismith at the time, apparently let his emotions out in public after the footballer refused to answer the questions from supporters.

Rather than simply being aloof, Naismith told the fans that Stones has been banned from speaking in public about his current situation.

For the record, after the Barnsley game, manager Martinez again said on camera that the Chelsea target is not for sale.
