Everton manager Roberto Martinez has dismissed any chances that the club are willing to sell defender Leighton Baines.
Martinez is desperate to keep his key player and has claimed that the club are not desperate for money and transfer decisions will be based on footballing reasons rather than financial gain.
Martinez claims that no club has met the player's valuation, not even David Moyes' Manchester United.
“If I want a player I need to match the valuation to then put the other club and the player in a situation to make a decision,” he said.
“We have never been in a situation where the valuation has been matched with Leighton.
“As a club we don’t need the money. We don’t need to balance the books and that is a situation we wanted to have – to make football decisions, not financial decisions.
“We don’t want to sell Leighton. When you are in a position when you have to bring money then are relying on what you can sell. We are not in that position.
“We’re not in talks with him about a deal. We don’t have to say it publicly but nobody is for sale.”
