Everton defender Leighton Baines is reportedly close to agreeing a new long-term deal at Goodison Park.
The England international, who joined the Toffees from Wigan Athletics in August 2007 for £6m, is thought to be on the verge of earning £75,000 per week on signing the new deal.
This will also put to bed Manchester United’s continued interest in the 29-year-old after twice failing to lure him to Old Trafford over the summer.
Former Everton manager David Moyes wanted to sign the left-back along with midfielder Marouane Fellaini for a joint fee of £28m in the summer, which the club dismissed out-rightly.
The Premier League champions eventually succeeded in securing Fellaini for £27.5m but every effort to land Baines fell through.
It is believed the defender could sign his new contract when the club, who are currently on a break in Tenerife, returns from their brief vacation.
Moyes is also keeping tabs on Southampton’s Luke Shaw and Real Madrid’s Fabio Coentrao.
