​Ancelotti: Baines to decide Everton future at end of season

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti says that defender Leighton Baines will decide his future at the end of the season.

The 35-year-old former England international, who has been with the Toffees since 2007, has been offered a new one-year deal at Goodison Park.

"We are waiting for the new season, and every decision he makes it will be a good decision," said Ancelotti.

"We offer a new contract because Leighton as a professional, as a player and as a man is really important, for us. At end of the season [whatever] he will decide to do is a good decision."
