Everton defender Leighton Baines' performances for England have proved to manager Roberto Martinez he is one of the best left-backs around.
Everton manager Roberto Martinez will give some reserve players a chance to impress in the Capital One Cup against Stevenage.
Everton manager Roberto Martinez wants to reward Leighton Baines' loyalty with a new contract after the club fended off interest from Manchester United in the summer transfer window.
Former Toffees boss David Moyes wanted to take the England left-back and midfielder Marouane Fellaini to Old Trafford with him, but only succeeded in buying the latter.
While the Belgium international had regularly hinted at looking for a new club over the last 12 months, Baines has been a model professional and Martinez believes that deserves recognition.
Everton boss Roberto Martinez last night sealed a triple swoop for James McCarthy, Romelu Lukaku and Gareth Barry to bring a dramatic end to transfer deadline day at Goodison Park.
The expected departure of Marouane Fellaini to Manchester United enabled Martinez to match Wigan chairman Dave Whelan's £13million valuation of McCarthy, while Lukaku and Barry arrived on one-year loan deals.
Fellaini completed his £27.5million move to Manchester United after a long period of speculation which included the Belgian driving to Everton's training ground to hand in a deadline-day transfer request.
Everton boss Roberto Martinez is expected to bring back all his big names for Saturday's trip to Cardiff.
Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini are amongst those who were left out of the midweek Capital One Cup win over Stevenage, although it was the latter man who got the winner after being introduced from the bench.
Darron Gibson (knee) and Antolin Alcaraz (hamstring) have returned to training but are not expected to be involved.
Team (from): Howard, Robles, Heitinga, Hibbert, Coleman, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, Mirallas, Naismith, Deulofeu, Fellaini, Pienaar, Stones, Osman, Barkley, Jelavic, Kone, Anichebe.
Everton have begun consulting with fans - as promised - over the next redesign of their crest.
The club apologised to fans earlier this year after a rebrand for the 2013-14 season prompted a petition of complaint signed by more than 22,000 supporters.
They immediately vowed to take on board the views of fans for another new badge - the 11th in the club's history - for 2014-15.
Everton have now launched an extensive consultation process inviting fans to complete an online questionnaire and apply to join one of a series of focus groups.
The final design for the badge will eventually by decided by a vote.
Director of communications Alan Myers said: "The 2014-15 crest will be the people's crest, make no mistake about that.
"All I ask is that the fans trust me, as an Evertonian, to deliver it to them.
"Every single supporter may not get exactly what they want but they will have the chance to give their input and shape the crest."
Everton manager Roberto Martinez has praised the professionalism of sought-after duo Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines.
Belgium midfielder Fellaini and England left-back Baines were this week subject of a £28million joint bid from Manchester United.
That offer was rejected as "derisory and insulting" by Goodison Park chiefs and Martinez is pleased with how the players have dealt with the situation.

"I couldn't be prouder of their professionalism and the way they have been behaving.
"They are two great assets of the football club. I think they realise what they have done in the past and they are very respectful towards that.
"In the same manner, the way we have dealt with things is very transparent, very clear. We always communicate whatever is going on with the players.
"They understand as well that the start of the season is a vital time for us.
"The only worry now is to prepare for the games and be as right as they can on the pitch.
Everton striker Toni Duggan's injury-time leveller gave England a lifeline in the UEFA Women's European Championship following a draw against Russia in Linkoping, Sweden.
She struck in the third minute of added-on time to cancel out Nelli Korovkina's first-half opener, although Duggan's heroics - after she had been denied by the woodwork seconds earlier - still leaves England's hopes of emerging from Group C hanging by a thread.
Duggan had conflicting emotions after bagging the equaliser as she knows it may not prove enough, in the coming days, to save England in the competition.
She told BBC Sport: "I don't know how I feel. I'm disappointed. We played Russia and we expect to win and we've come away with a draw."
"But I've been waiting to play my part in the team and thankfully today I did that."
"I've been kicking on my heels, I've been dying to get on but Hope's given me the chance and thankfully I've repaid that, so I'm happy."
"Now we just have to move on to the big one against France because I don't think we've shown what we can do in this tournament and there's still a lot more to come from everybody else."
