As Man City sign John Stones for £47.5m from Everton, these were some of the best jokes in response to the transfer.

Stones becomes the most expensive defender in history, his fee smashing the £40m that PSG paid Chelsea for David Luiz.

Furthermore, Uefa have registered him in time to play in City’s Champions League qualifying tie against FC Steaua București.

Ronald Koeman’s Toffees have turned their attentions to Swansea’s Ashley Williams and Sunderland’s Lamine Koné in the search for a replacement.

Now here is a selection of some of the best jokes as Man City sign John Stones:

25 – John Stones will celebrate his move to Man City by giving the ball away just 25 times on his debut. Talent.

Big achievement for Stones, signing for City. Probably his biggest since he taught Damien Rice how to fly.

Heard from a reliable source that the Stones announcement has been delayed because they're making a music video with the Piccadilly Rats.

Everton replace John Stones instantly. Arsenal still haven't replaced half of their invincible team.
