Martin Keown has warned John Stones he will be making a big mistake if he joins Chelsea this summer.The defender is reportedly ready to hand in a transfer request to force through a move to Stamford Bridge after the Toffees rejected the Premier League champions’ latest £30million offer.But Keown, who made more than 100 appearances for Everton during his four-year stay on Merseyside, says the 21-year-old should stay put for another year at least for the good of his career.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the former England international said: “He should stay. He still needs to grow as a player and he needs to know he is number one choice.“I don’t think the [Chelsea] manager is completely stable at the moment, he is going through a really difficult period, and he is better staying at Everton for another season.“They adore him, the Evertonians. They got me in the England team because they were so supportive. He needs that warmth for at least another year for his development.“He still has things to work on. I don’t think he is superb from crosses, I don’t think he marks brilliantly, I want to see him being more commanding from set-pieces, and all that comes from being the leader in a group for a team like Everton and then maybe he moves to Chelsea.“He is going to be an outstanding player but I don’t get this massive rush. Just stay where you are and develop and do the job for Everton. It is a huge club there.”
