Everton and England left-back Leighton Baines has endured ankle surgery and will be out of action until the start of pre-season training.

Toffees boss Roberto Martinez has explained that the former Wigan Athletic star had a small procedure on Wednesday after being forced to limp out of Saturday's 2-0 home loss to Sunderland, 5.00 to be relegated this season.

Baines will play no part in Everton's last two games of the campaign against West Ham United and Tottenham.

Martinez said: "Leighton had a little bit of instability in his ankle that flared up in the last two weeks and was really painful in the last game, so we got it checked and he needed a little bit of repair work so he had surgery. It was a straightforward operation to clear the ankle and give it good stability.

"He will be out now until the start of pre-season but it is exactly what he needed. He was trying to play through the pain barrier.

"It has been a problem since 2012 and obviously the ankle has been showing signs in the last two weeks that it needed a bit of work. We are looking forward to getting him back fully-fit and strong for next season."
