30-Year-Old Defender Everton Premier
Leighton Baines Contract Information:
Signed a new four-year contract in January 2014.
Baines (ankle) started and played 64 minutes during a friendly with Hearts on Sunday, the club's official website reports.
Baines did not travel with the team on its preseason tour to Singapore in order to stay back and continue rehabbing his ankle injury, but his appearance Sunday certainly bodes well for his chances of starting Everton's Premier League opener, which comes Aug. 8 against Watford at Goodison Park.
