Roberto Martinez is 100 percent certain Leighton Baines will remain at Everton until the end of the season.

The Sunday Mirror quoted Martinez as saying: “In football you don´t work long term, you go window to window, and I can guarantee that Leighton will be here at the end of the season. That is 100 percent.

“That is how you work from window to window – to have a stronger squad than previously.

“Leighton is vital for us in the second half of the season. Bryan Oviedo has been terrific, but we need Leighton and Bryan fit for us if we are going to fight for our football dream.”
