Manchester City have announced the signing of England defender, John Stones from Everton for £47.5m, making him the world’s second most expensive defender.

The  England international has signed a six-year deal and is City boss Pep Guardiola’s eighth signing.

“It’s an ambitious club with a great manager so I can’t wait to get stuck in,” he said.

“I know it will be tough getting a place in this team but I’m determined to become the best player I can be and help us to success.”

Last year, City made Raheem Sterling the most expensive English player ever when he joined the club for £49m from Liverpool.

Brazilian David Luiz is the most expensive defender in history, joining French champions Paris St-Germain from Chelsea in 2014.

Everton rejected a £40m bid for Stones from Chelsea last summer, with the player having a transfer request refused by chairman Bill Kenwright.

Stones, who started his career at Barnsley, made 95 appearances for the Toffees in three seasons, scoring once.
