Everton have posted a series of photos on their Instagram channel of Leighton Baines and his plethora of hairstyles over the years.
The Goodison Park veteran has written his name in the club’s history as a fan favourite and devoted servant to the club. As it stands at the moment, Baines will be leaving the club in the summer upon the expiry of his contract, but Blues fans are praying he is offered at least one more year.
Should Everton give Leighton Baines a new contract?
The Merseyside local has had just two clubs in his senior career, Wigan and Everton. For the Toffees, the 35-year-old has made a total of 417 appearances and has contributed to 43 goals and 69 assists (via Transfermarkt).
Many Everton fans in the comments of the club’s Instagram post are hoping the Blues will announce a new contract for Baines, whose current deal ends next month. Others have branded him a ‘legend’ as they look back at the different hairstyles he has sported through his time on Merseyside.
The Liverpool local could feature for the Blues once the Premier League returns in June. Everton’s first match back in action will be against the Reds in the Merseyside derby.
What’s your take, Blues fans? Should the club offer Leighton Baines a new contract? Have your say in the comments below…
