​Everton confident of Baines agreement

Everton are confident of securing left back Leighton Baines to a new contract, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The 34-year-old has not yet committed to a new deal, while he is out of contract this summer.

However, the Blues are confident that he will put pen to paper on a deal that will keep him at Goodison Park for another 12 months.

Baines may not be first choice at Everton, given the emergence of Lucas Digne.

However, he is still seen as a key player for all competitions and as a positive influence within the dressing room.

If Baines does renew, it means that youngster Antonee Robinson will head on loan for another season.

He was hoping to get a first team chance, but being behind Baines and Digne means he would have very few chances at starting games.
