Liverpool:

England left back Leighton Baines has signed a new four-year contract with Everton, ending Manchester United's hopes of luring the defender to Old Trafford.

The 29-year-old Baines has established himself as one of the top attacking full backs in the country and was the subject of two bids from United during the last off-season.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that keeping Baines at the club is a "massive boost and exciting for the future" because he brings "maturity and football knowledge in a very specialized position on the pitch" and an "infectious and positive influence to the rest of the squad."

Baines, who joined Everton from Wigan in 2007, is battling with Ashley Cole to be England's starting left back at the World Cup in Brazil.
