Everton are working hard to secure Leighton Baines to a new deal.

Manchester United plan a £15 million bid for Baines in January, but Everton aren't giving up on keeping hold of their England left-back.

The Liverpool Echo says talks are well underway with Baines' camp about a bumper pay-rise.

While manager Roberto Martinez has been silent on the prospect of renegotiating Baines' current deal, there has been plenty of movement behind the scenes in an attempt to get the player's signature secured.
