Everton have announced the signing of Mason Holgate from Barnsley, which incidentally is the club from which they signed Chelsea target John Stones.

Is this a case of replacing one young promising defender from Barnsley with another? Well, you'd expect that Everton would bring in someone of a higher quality and experience if they were to earn around £30m from the sale of Stones.

However, it's surely an indicator of needing to reinforce their back-line. Perhaps Everton are doing a Liverpool and buying lots of players to replace one. Time will tell, but Chelsea fans will be licking their lips in anticipation.
