Everton set to offer Baines a new deal to see off Man United interest

Everton are hoping to tie long-term Manchester United target Leighton Baines to a new contract in the hopes of ending any uncertainty surrounding the left-back’s future, reports The Guardian.

Leighton Baines

The defender, who has 12 months left on his contract at the end of the season, is wanted by former Everton boss David Moyes as he looks to strengthen his defence.

Having failed with numerous bids during the summer, Moyes’ admiration for the England international remains despite not formally bidding for him during the current window.

However officials at Goodison Park are keen to extend the 29-year-old's contract, with The Guardian suggesting that a breakthrough for a new contract extension has been made in recent days.

An extension for Baines was originally proposed at the end of last season by Everton, but was put off because of the interest from Moyes and United.

With current United left-back Patrice Evra set to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season, Baines has been targeted as an ideal replacement for the Frenchman.

The former Wigan Atheltic man has only figured for Everton 15 times this season due to a toe injury he sustained during the Merseyside Derby last November.
