Lots of Everton fans have been buzzing as Leighton Baines has agreed a short-term deal to stay at the Merseyside club until at least the end of the 2019/20 season, according to their official website.
As per the Toffees, the 35-year old has also been offered a contract extension for another year, which would keep him until the end of the 2020/21 campaign, but he has yet to put pen to paper on this.
Should Baines have signed a new deal at Everton?
Djibril Sidibe has also signed an extension to his loan deal from AS Monaco, whereas Oumar Niasse, Cuco Martina and Luke Garbutt will all depart when their deals expire at the end of the month.
A number of players from the under 23’s squad have all been released as Nathangelo Markelo and Con Ouzounidis have both been offered new contracts.
However, it is the news that Baines has extended his deal that has excited members of the Goodison Park faithful the most, given just how much he has given to the Blues over the last 13 terms.
These EFC supporters buzzed upon reading the news on Twitter:
