Barnsley hit back at Moyes over Stones fee

BARNSLEY FC has hit back at claims by former Everton manager David Moyes that the Merseyside club paid just £1.25m for defender John Stones.

Moyes was a guest on Sky Sports' Goals on Sunday show at the weekend when he was asked about the signing of Stones from Oakwell in January 2013.

The widely reported fee for Stones was £3m, but Moyes claimed it was significantly less.

But in a statement issued this morning, the club said: "David Moyes played no part in any negotiation with Barnsley FC concerning the transfer of John Stones, which may explain why he is mistaken as to the fee paid."

As a supporter would he good for the club to come out and say what the minimum fee was? This will surely stop all the misinformation being voiced?
