Leighton Baines says he's planning on staying at Everton for the rest of his career – and is optimistic he will have won some silverware with the Club by the time he does come to hang up his boots.

Baines, 29, signalled his commitment to the Blues by signing a new four-year contract at Goodison Park in January.

And the left-back, who has played nearly 300 games for Everton since joining in 2007, said: “I may well retire here now - I’m not looking to go anywhere else.

“I’m trying to achieve something at this Club because it’s been starved of success over the decades.

“I would love to be a part of a team that brings success back.”

Samuel Eto’o became the fourth World Cup star to make a summer switch to Everton on Wednesday, joining Muhamed Besic, Romelu Lukaku and Christian Atsu.

And Baines says the Club’s ambition has also been reflected in the way Ross Barkley and John Stones have signed new extended deals.

He continued: “They were linked to other clubs but committed themselves to Everton on long-term contracts, and that’s as big a boost as anything.”
