Everton are bracing themselves for a bid for Leighton Baines from Man Utd. Or are they?
United know that they are short in the left back area and Sir Whiskey Nose (SWN) hinted at the van Persie circus conference that there would be no more signings unless "a certain player became available in one more position".
Now everybody thinks he could be talking about Bainsey and they are probably right. But the important word in that statement is available.
Jack Rodwell went because David Moyes made him available. Do you think for one minute that David Moyes will make Leighton Baines available for transfer? Not a chance.
