Baines having Medical at Everton
Leighton Baines is today having a medical at Goodison Park after Wigan Athletic accepted Everton`s bid for the player
Baines is expected to sign for the Merseyside club today leaving the Latics without a recognised left back for the start of the new season
Latics boss Chris Hutchings is desperately looking for cover on the left side of defence following the collapse of Paul Robinson`s move from West Brom
Celta Vigo`s Diego Placente and Scunthorpe`s Marcus Williams have both been identified as potential target ahead of the first game of the season on Saturday
Ironically Latics first game is at Goodison Park but Baines is unlikely to feature because he is suffering from a slight and perhaps diplomatic thigh strain
It is understood that Latics have had a significant sell on clause attached to Baines`s transfer contract which could provide a decent windfall in a couple of years when Manchester United come knocking on Everton`s door
