Mixed opinions: Everton supporters react to update on Leighton Baines’ future

According to the Liverpool Echo, Everton have offered Leighton Baines a new one-year deal to stay with the Toffees until the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

As it stands, Baines will be a free agent when his current deal expires on June 30.

However, according to the Liverpool Echo, Everton have placed a contract on the table as the 34-year-old is still wanted as back-up to Lucas Digne.

It did not take long for Digne to replace Baines at left-back following his arrival from Barcelona.

In fairness, the Frenchman was outstanding for Marco Silva’s side last season, meaning that Baines was restricted to just eight appearances in all competitions.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the 5 ft 7 ace will discuss his situation with his family before deciding whether to stay at Goodison Park for another year.

The Everton fans have been on social media offering their views on the situation and a selection of their reaction – which is mixed – can be seen below:
