Everton Want to deal with Baines
It`s emerging that Everton have offered Wigan Athletic £4 million plus either James McFadden or Lee Carsley in an effort to tempt Chris Hutchings to sell Leighton Baines
The Goodison Park club are stuck to the £4 million cash offer due to a self imposed transfer limit
The Toffees will not go above this figure in monetary terms when bidding for a player
However to meet the Latics valuation of Baines they are prepared to offer a player as part of the deal, with the two players Everton value at £2 million being McFadden and Carsley
Hutch nearly signed Carsley in May on a free transfer before the midfield player decided to extend his contract at Goodison Park
It is believed that Carsley is indeed the man Latics want
The transfer could be completed as early as Monday or Tuesday of next week as both clubs appear to be prepared to do business
Today could be Baines`s last match in a Latics shirt as Hutch`s men travel to Halifax for their latest friendly
Personally I would prefer McFadden to Carsley merely for McFadden being younger and more versatile but Carsley won`t be a bad signing and he is Hutchings choice
Baines, £4 million and Lee Carsley, good deal for Latics or Everton?
