Roberto Martinez is delighted that England international left-back Leighton Baines has pledged his future to Everton by penning a new long-term contract with the club.

The 29-year-old former Wigan Athletic star, who had been linked with a transfer to Manchester United last summer, will now do his best to help Everton clinch a top-four finish in the Premier League this season. They are available at 5.50 to succeed in their quest.

Martinez said of Baines, who had 17 months left on his previous Goodison Park deal: "It would be an understatement to say we are delighted to secure the best footballing years of Leighton Baines at our club.

"It's a massive boost and exciting for the future. Leighton has just turned 29 and brings the right measure of maturity and football knowledge in a very specialised position on the pitch, bringing an infectious and positive influence to the rest of the squad.

"I know that every fan will be delighted with the news and we all share that excitement looking at what's left of this campaign and beyond. With the crucial games we have ahead, it is going to be vitally important to have Leighton's experience there to help us fight for our aims."

Baines moved to Everton in July 2007 and has gone on to feature in more than 260 games for the club.

He has also earned 22 caps since making his England debut against Egypt in March 2010.

Baines' decision to stay at Everton comes just one day before the Merseyside derby which the Toffees can be backed at 17.00 to edge 2-1. Martinez's side are available at 6.00 to keep a clean sheet at Anfield against a Liverpool side that is 1.90 to finish in the top four this term.
