Revealed: 68% of Everton fans want to replace Baines this summer

Everton fans have been debating the future of Leighton Baines, and an overwhelming majority want to replace the left back this summer.

It’s been a weird season for Everton and their fans, as the summer spending spree that was supposed to push them into the top six only pushed them further down the table.

Sam Allardyce was brought in to rescue the Toffees from a relegation scrap, and the former England manager did the job, although not exactly to the satisfaction of most fans.

Perhaps the biggest problem at times for Everton was the injuries in defence, where veterans Seamus Coleman, Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines all missed time through injury.

Cuco Martina struggled to replace the iconic Everton full back duo, and Ashley Williams took plenty of stick for failing to fill Jagielka’s boots.

The Toffees have certainly been a better team since the return of their experienced heads at the back, but that hasn’t stopped a whopping 68 per cent voting to replace Baines this summer.

Espanyol youngster Aaron Martin has been linked with a move to Goodison, and it seems fans are looking to freshen things up at the back despite the positive impact of their experienced trio.
