Baines Signs Four-Year Deal

Everton left-back and England international Leighton Baines has signed a new contract with the club for the next four years.

Former Everton gaffer David Moyes has now made two failed attempts, in signing the 29 year old, to move to Manchester United last summer.

“He is one of the best left-backs in European football and has the World Cup around the corner. I’m looking at what Leighton can do is huge”

The left-back joined Everton in 2007 signing from Wigan Athletic for £6 million and only had 18 months remaining on his contract.

Manchester United were put straight into the papers as the January window opened after they failed in signing him on two occasions before the opening of the season, but now the former Everton boss and now Man United boss will now have to look elsewhere.

Now that the contract has been signed, which has now secured his long term future at the club and has given Everton a boost of confidence for Tuesday’s game against Liverpool; the big Merseyside derby.

The Merseyside pair are eager to finish in that top four spot come the end of the season, with Liverpool currently sitting in that position in the Champions League spot; one point ahead of their local rivals.

The future of Dutch defender Johnny Heitinga is to be determined in the next two days as Martinez has revealed two overseas teams have claimed interest in the defender.

I am a 23 year old IT Support Engineer from the West Midlands, UK. I have a huge passion for football; following most of the action across the major European leagues and beyond. I follow Everton FC (don't ask why) and my local football team. My main hobbies are writing, running, taking my dogs out for a walk, running and playing computer games. Most of the articles I write will be based on the major football events. However, I have an interest in other sports such as Formula 1, Snooker, Tennis and Golf. My aim is to write an article for the site at least once a week; depending on the news that's circulating sport.
