It has been reported that Everton will look to make Leighton Baines the clubs top earner after he decided to remain this summer.

The 28 year old England left-back opted against a move to Manchester United and the Toffees want to reward him for his loyalty by offering a new deal.
It is believed that Everton are prepared to pay Baines £75,000-a-week and will open talks soon now that the transfer window is closed.
Manager Roberto Martinez said: “From having interest to a situation where you have to consider a move is very, very different.
“Leighton is a very special footballer and a special player for Everton. We are looking forward to him enjoying the challenge that lies ahead.

“Now the window is closed, we are going to look into all of the players in the squad and see where their contracts are up to. It would have created more instability if we had done that while the window was open.”
