Everton fans show love for Baines as club winds clock back 10 years

Everton have been busy bringing in new signings this summer, but today they focused on an old favourite.

On this day 10 years ago, Leighton Baines joined the Toffees from Wigan Athletic.

The left-back went on to become a first-team regular and club legend, racking up more than 350 appearances and scoring 36 goals.

At 32 years of age, Baines remains an important member of the team, and under manager Ronald Koeman last season he featured 32 times in the Premier League.

Everton chose to celebrate the left-back on the same day that he signed for the Toffees in 2007.

The Merseyside outfit will have a new-look team in this campaign, with seven deals over the line already.

Koeman has made it clear that he hopes to bring in more signings before the transfer window slams shut at the end of the month.

One of those is Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, who is believed to be close to sealing a move.

Today, Everton fans put aside talk of new arrivals to focus on their stalwart.
