It seems Leighton Baines’ days at Everton are numbered considering reports are emerging of him leaving Merseyside and going off to Munich. Manager David Moyes was quick to squash these rumors insisting there’s no truth behind them and it’s only speculation.
Leighton Baines has been one of the highlights of Everton’s season so far and along with Tim Cahill they are Everton most prized assets. With Tim Cahill leaving in January to do battle for Australia it will be left down to Englishman Baines to provide the spark that Everton need to get their season up and running.
Everton are currently struggling and are placed at 14th in the table at the moment. Although they’re traditionally known as ‘slow starters’ it’s not a nice feeling being so near the bottom. This season the table has become far more tighter than in recent seasons with 1 point separating Everton and 8th and 6 separating them from 5th place Tottenham.
