One of the left backs that Liverpool has been eyeing looks to no longer be an option.
According to ESPNsoccernet, Everton manager David Moyes revealed that his defenseman Leighton Baines will not be sold to Liverpool this summer.
“I can’t see it,” Moyes said of Baines possibly moving. “It’s not for me that one and I think Liverpool know that as well.”
The English defender has been with the Everton club since 2007, and his manager stands firm that he’s not going anywhere.
“We have signed Leighton on a five-year deal. I don’t want to sell him and Everton don’t sell cheap.”
In 34 games with The Toffees this season, the 26-year-old has four goals and 11 assists, along with 27 shots.
