Everton manager Roberto Martinez wants to reward Leighton Baines’s loyalty with a new contract.

The England left-back stayed at Goodison despite interest from Manchester United and maintained a dignified silence in the face of ongoing speculation — and Martinez believes Baines’s actions deserve recognition.
