​Injured Baines left behind for Everton's Singapore visit

England defender Leighton Baines will be absent from Everton's pre-season visit to Singapore.

The 30-year-old left-back underwent ankle surgery in May and missed the final two games of the Barclays Premier League season as well as England's Euro 2016 qualifier in Slovenia.

"Leighton Baines, Darron Gibson and Bryan Oviedo are missing from the squad (for Singapore), with the trio recovering from injuries which saw them miss the end of the 2014/15 campaign," the official Everton website said.
