    I personally believe Stones has the potential to improve, especially if we can keep Vinny on the pitch, for him to play alongside. Hopefully with more coaching, we will get the defender that we paid the huge fee. I was just always concerned when Lescott, and Mangala had the ball at their feet, because they always appeared uncomfortable, a bit like a wounded deer, so I really don't think they had the ability to adopt to our current system. Both were probably classed as a half decent defender, well Lescott more so, but I really wouldn't want either back, as they wouldn't be able to get to the level we are searching for.

    Looks like he might be nearer to getting his feet back under the table. On the plane to USA.......I had high hopes for him when he came! A physical giant!

    Looking at the other names joining him,i wouldnt read too much into his longevity here.I suspect its more 'shop window' thinking.

    As ive stated previous though,as a 4th option,he's better than most,and he could save us a fortune - i wouldn't be averse to the idea.

    Don't think it will happen but would really like to see him get another chance

    I doubt it.

    Only on tour because Otamendi for some reason isn't.

    Denayer is in the US but won't be at City come the start of the season.
