Everton vice-captain Leighton Baines has announced his retirement from football.

Baines, 35, made his 420th and final appearance for Everton in Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to Bournemouth on the last day of the Premier League season, replacing Lucas Digne after 70 minutes.


In a farewell letter to Everton supporters on the club’s website, Baines said:I am incredibly proud to have represented Everton for the past 13 years and my decision to retire has been a difficult one to make.

Success! You’re on the list.
