Man Utd have opening Baines bid rejected by Everton

Manchester United have failed with an opening bid for Everton star Leighton Baines.

Manchester United have failed with an opening bid for Everton star Leighton Baines.

The Daily Star says United boss David Moyes - who officially begins work at Old Trafford on Monday - returned to his former club with an offer of around £12m for the defender.

But it was dismissed out of hand by Everton, who stressed the 28-year-old is not for sale.

The Toffees are determined to maintain that stance but it is unlikely to deter United.
