Everton up bid for Wigan fullback Baines

Everton have edged closer to prising Leighton Baines away from Wigan after increasing their offer to about £5.5m.

Baines has made it clear he wants to join his boyhood idols, so Everton are confident of landing him but could be kept waiting by doubts over Wigan target Paul Robinson.

They had agreed a £2.8m fee but the West Brom left-back was born without an anterior cruciate ligament and complications over the medical may lead to Wigan insisting on a pay as you play deal.
