Roberto Martinez: John Stones will not leave in January

Meanwhile, Martinez has backed the idea of playing the French national anthem before all matches this weekend as a mark of respect for those affected by the terror attacks on Paris.

"I think we all experienced the feelings surrounding the game between England and France on Tuesday," Martinez said.

"It was a fantastic vehicle for showing solidarity and what the game of football can do, and I think this weekend would be exactly the same.

"It's a perfect way to show the game has a strong role in getting humanity together to show that solidarity."
