Everton No2 Steve Round says Leighton Baines has a future at Goodison Park.
Round said: "He just needs an opportunity and if it does come at Ewood Park, he will be ready for it. He is a very good professional and when the manager decided to change things at Hull his attitude was absolutely fine.
"He has never moaned or complained. He has got on with the job and trained superbly and if he pushes himself as I know he can he could develop into one of the best left backs in the Premier League."
