Everton left-back Leighton Baines has distanced himself from speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United, the Daily Mail reports.

Reports have suggested that David Moyes is keen to be re-united with Baines at his new club Manchester United and could use Baines as a possible replacement for Patrice Evra.

However, Baines feels his future lies at Goodison Park and the England international is looking forward to working with new manager Roberto Martinez.

‘He was one of the first names linked with  the job and the feeling straight away was he would be a great appointment,’ he  said.

‘He has a different style to what we have  been used to but I think it is progressive and it will move us  forward”.

The recent speculation surrounding Baines will have worried Everton fans, who look set to see the back of midfielder Maurone Fellaini, with Arsenal have activated his £22 million buy-out fee.

However, the fans will be glad that Baines wants to stay at Goodison Park and it will make Roberto Martinez job much easier being able to call on the reliable left-backs services.

Martinez has recently stated that he could offer Baines a new contract at the club following the defenders excellent performances last season.
