Whether we`ll sign the Everton left back Leighton Baines this week, next week or not at all only time will tell.

But speculation linking him with a move to Old Trafford continues and the player has admitted in the Sunday press that he is aware of the talk, remarking,

“Although I started preparing for the Euros with England as soon as the season finished I`ve been aware of what`s being said in the Press about my future. But beyond that I don`t know much.”

“I`ve got here years still to go at Everton, and, although I don`t think it does anyone any harm to be linked to a club like United, it doesn`t do any good either.”

“But it is becoming a particular problem at Everton that players have to be sold each year.”

“Over the years the manager has lost players here and there and I`m sure he would have liked to have kept hold of.”

“Whether that`s because the club have needed the money or whether it`s because they received what they consider is a considerable bid for a player, I don`t know.”


Will he sign for us or will he still be an Everton player come the start of the season on August 18th?
