Martinez: Baines is an icon

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has given a clear indication to Manchester United he intends to fight to keep defender Leighton Baines.

I think Leighton is more than a player, he is an icon.

When you are the left-back of this football club, and the level that he has been reaching over the last few years consistently, it shows me that he is the best left-back in the country.

I can't wait to start working with him.
