Yesterday we reported on how Fulham were keen to land the young Barnsley right-back John Stones.

We reported on how it was being insinuated that a fee of £1.5 million might well be enough to lure Barnsley into parting with their prize asset.

Unfortunately, overnight, it looks as if we`ve been gazumped with it now being reported that Martin O`Neill`s Sunderland are in the hot-seat to land the player courtesy of a proposed £3 million bid!

Inflation or what?
