Baines looking forward to Martinez arrival

Everton defender Leighton Baines is looking forward to working with new manager Roberto Martinez and believes the quality of the Toffees' squad will give the Spaniard every chance of success.

He was one of the first names linked with the job and the feeling straight away was he would be a great appointment.

He has a different style to what we have been used to but I think it is progressive and it will move us forward.

It is also exciting for the players to be able to try that now.

The style in general appeals to a lot of people. Wigan were a great side to watch - they just didn't win enough games.

But the manager will be working with some better players here and he will be looking forward to that as well now, being able to put his plan out there.
