Baines not interested in speculation

Published Add your comment

Everton defender Leighton Baines insists his focus is on Euro 2012 rather than his own future.

Baines has been linked with a summer move to Manchester United after another fine season for the Toffees, but he said he is channeling all his energies into helping England do well in Poland and the Ukraine.

"The United link is flattering," Baines said. "There is no harm in people talking about it because it is a great club. But I'm at a great club as well, a club that I love. The focus now is all on the tournament. There's not much time to let other things seep in."
