Reds youngster pens extension
What’s more, Stones received more great news as he was called up to the England Under 19s for the Young Lions’ friendly against Germany next month ahead of their European qualifying campaign.
He joined the club as an eight-year-old after supporting the Reds from the terraces and the youngster is loving life in the first team, having made his full debut against Rochdale in the League Cup – a game which saw him notch his first senior goal – and start his first league match in the 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough.
A first-year professional, Stones impressed as captain of the Under 18s last season and penned his first professional deal but has today penned an extension with his boyhood club.
Barnsley Football Club are delighted to announce defender John Stones has penned a contract extension at Oakwell, keeping the 18-year-old at the club until at least the summer of 2015.
